  • Sendkey not working

    I've got my pc configured so that a "Ctrl-Q" command launches my nvidia nview screen that lets me change my desktop mode from dual view to extended.

    When I'm using RR and I push the Ctrl-Q on my keyboard, the nview screen appears and I am able to do what I want. I've created a button on a RR screen and given it the following command:
    "SENDKEY;^{q}" and when I use it nothing happens. I've read about the "ACTIVATE" command, but I'm not sure what I should be activating. The Ctrl-Q command is sent to windows....how to I use the sendkey command to send to windows and not a specific app?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Sendkeys does NOT work for everything. In any case..

      How did you map CTRL+Q ? If you did it by a windows shortcut, all you have to do is copy the command line used to open the screen and use the RUN command on a button to execute the same thing.

      For the nview application itself, you may want to check this:

      From the above, you should be able to at least make 2 buttons to switch between a profile and another directly (using the RUN command on each with the desired parameters).

        The ctrl+q was mapped in the nview software itself. I did try activating the "explorer.exe" before posting this, but was unsuccessful. I'll read through the above post and see what I can figure out.

        Thanx guino.

            Thanx...tried it but it didn't work.

            I took another approach with it. When pressing Ctrl-Q, the nvidia driver was actually launching an exe named "nvdspsch.exe". When I call this executable directly from the command line is works as desired. So instead of using sendkeys with the ctrl-q, I'm using a custom command setup in the ExecTBL file that executes RR's RUN command with the appropriate path/filename.

            Thanx everyone for the help/suggestions.
