Hi Shiva,


Thank you for your query.  The Send Keys is currently in the testing phase and the same will be made available soon.


We will update you once it is ready.

Hi Shiva,

Thank you for your interest in INTELLIBOT!

Below mentioned are the differences between Input types in the Sendkeys Component

SendInput is a method to simulate key strokes to a target application. This method works almost everywhere except in some Unicode environments.


SendKeys is another method to simulate key strokes like SendInput, however this method works under certain restrictions applied by Operating system (for example, this does not work for RDP sessions).


Background method simulates key strokes using windows messaging unlike SendInput & SendKeys. This approach works mostly for application that relies on windows messaging (like windows desktop applications).



Scancodes is another alternative method to send virtual key strokes. This method would be very helpful where the above methods do not work.



Feel free to revert for any further questions.
