Data Loader Keystrokes

 

In Forms Data Loader you can send keystrokes to the target application by entering the "\" as the starting letter. FDL recognizes a cell as keystroke if the cell contains as back slash "\" in the first position.

 

For Example to send ALT and F keystroke enter \%f to send "ALT-FV" enter \%fv. 

 

To specify characters that aren't displayed when you press a key, such as ENTER or TAB, and keys that represent actions rather than characters, use the codes shown below:

 

Key Code
BACKSPACE \{BACKSPACE}, \{BS}, or \{BKSP}
BREAK \{BREAK}
CAPS LOCK \{CAPSLOCK}
DEL or DELETE \{DELETE} or \{DEL}
DOWN ARROW \{DOWN}
END \{END}
ENTER  \{ENTER}or ~
ESC \{ESC}
HELP \{HELP}
HOME \{HOME}
INS or INSERT \{INSERT} or \{INS}
LEFT ARROW \{LEFT}
NUM LOCK \{NUMLOCK}
PAGE DOWN \{PGDN}
PAGE UP \{PGUP}
PRINT SCREEN \{PRTSC}
RIGHT ARROW \{RIGHT}
SCROLL LOCK \{SCROLLLOCK}
TAB \{TAB}
UP ARROW \{UP}
F1 \{F1}
F2 \{F2}
F3 \{F3}
F4 \{F4}
F5 \{F5}
F6 \{F6}
F7 \{F7}
F8 \{F8}
F9 \{F9}
F10 \{F10}
F11 \{F11}
F12 \{F12}
F13 \{F13}
F14 \{F14}
F15 \{F15}
F16 \{F16}

 

 

 

To specify keys combined with any combination of the SHIFT, CTRL, and ALT keys, precede the key code with one or more of the following codes:

 

Key Code
SHIFT +
CTRL ^
ALT %

 

 

To specify that any combination of SHIFT, CTRL, and ALT should be held down while several other keys are pressed, enclose the code for those keys in parentheses. For example, to specify to hold down SHIFT while E and C are pressed, use "\+(EC)". To specify to hold down SHIFT while E is pressed, followed by C without SHIFT, use "\+EC".

 

To specify repeating keys, use the form {key number}. You must put a space between key and number. For example, \{LEFT 42} means press the LEFT ARROW key 42 times; \{h 10} means press H 10 times

 

 

Mouse Clicks

 

Code What it does
*MC(x,y)

OR

*ML(x,y)

If you enter *MC(x,y) in a cell, it tells FDL to simulate a mouse click in the target application while loading.

 

 X means X - Screen Coordinate and Y means Y - Screen Coordinate.

 

For example if you enter *MC(430,240) then FDL will simulate a mouse left click on the screen at the 430,240 coordinate while loading.

 

To capture exact coordinates please use our Get Screen Coordinate Tool by clicking on the Tools Menu. 


*MR(x,y)

 

f you enter *MR(x,y) in a cell, it tells FDL to simulate a Right mouse click in the target application while loading.

 

 X means X - Screen Coordinate and Y means Y - Screen Coordinate.

 

For example if you enter *MR(530,440) then FDL will simulate a mouse Right click on the screen at the 530,440 coordinate while loading.

 

 

 

The Forms Data Loader Macro Recording feature will automatically record the Key Strokes and Mouse Clicks as you enter data into a form.
