Sendkey Action Properties

To send an AID key to the host, you would add a Sendkey action to an event. You can set to which host screen and cursor location to send the key, and associate a data mapping to the action.

Note The Sendkey action is only available when you are working on a project that includes at least one host connection.

Send AID Key to this Host: Select a host to receive the AID key.

Send AID Key to this Screen: Select the host application screen to receive the AID key.

AID Key to be Sent: Select an AID key to send to the selected host and screen.

Expected Screen: Select the host application screen that you expect to result from this action. The list only includes screens to which the host application has navigated. If the screen you want is not on this list, select Unknown. If you can select the correct screen, this event will run faster, and screen data from the expected host screen will be listed as "Eligible Data" for mapping in subsequent actions within this event.

Set Cursor Position button: Displays a dialog box from which you can specify the cursor position that is sent with the AID key. To enable this button, you must first choose a host screen to which the AID key will be sent.

Assign Field Data button: Displays a dialog box from which you can assign any eligible data to be sent to a specified host field along with the AID key. To enable this button, you must first choose a host screen to which the AID key will be sent.
