    NumLock causes TypeKeys to fail

    I had a testcase where I needed to verify that typing Alt-Down would open a popup listbox.

    SilkTest was failing everytime when I tried sending in the key combination "Alt-Down". "Alt-#Down" was failing as well. After a lot of experimentation, I discovered that the key combination worked properly if I turned the NumLock off.

    Other Alt combinations, such as "Alt-F4" work properly whether NumLock is on or off.

    When I'm testing manually, Alt-Down works properly whether NumLock is on or off.

    Anyone have an idea why SilkTest fails in this scenario?


    Edit: I just discovered that "NumLockOn" and "NumLockOff" crash the Agent if the key is already in the desired state. That makes this scenario a bit harder to work around.

    Edit 2: Just noticed that the Greater than and Less than brackets I was putting in the strings caused the board to not display them. Just fixed that.

    Re: NumLock causes TypeKeys to fail

    Hi Burce,

    I had the same problem. I had to verify when Numlock is on or off.

    I used NumlockOn and NumlockOff. For me it did not crash the system. But it was not in sync with keyboard. Sometimes the even after numlockoff the Numlock is still on. I couldn't figure out the problem.

    Same thing happened with Caps Lock and Scroll Lock key.

    Just wanted tell you that you are not the only one who had this problem.

    Sorry no solution.
