Process Configuration Tab

In this screen all the runtime options of KeyLink are defined. You can select a specific window KeyLink must activate before continuing and also all keystrokes before, between and after download are defined here.

Target Application

When you selected the Find and activate window option you can force KeyLink to look for a specific window title and then let KeyLink activate it (restore target application when minimized and let it have the focus) before it starts to 'type' the data into the receiving application. You can enter the name of the target window in the Window title box. A significant part of the title is sufficient so that both 'Notepad - Untitled1' and 'Notepad - Untitled2' will both activate Notepad when 'Notepad' has been entered into the Window title box.

If you don't select the find and activate window option, the top window will get the focus after KeyLink minimizes itself. This is not reccommended because this is of course a less reliable way of sending keystrokes to the target application and therefore more receptable to faults (target application not loaded, incorrect screen, etc...).

Keystrokes to send

In this section you can define the keystrokes to be send to the target application during each stage of the process. The [Keystroke help] button displays the syntax of the keystroke macros.

Before transfer

The keystroke macro defined in this box is send after successfully activating the target application but before the internal Powergen/EasyGen table is send.

Between fields

The keystroke macro to be send between each field of the Powergen/EasyGen table.

Between records

The keystroke macro to be send between each record of the Powergen/EasyGen table.

After transfer

The keystroke macro to be send after completion of the dowload.

Keystroke help

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.

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}
+ {+}
^ {^}
% {%}
~ {~}
( {(}
) {)}
