How to use keys of HOME and SHIFT to select text --- Num_Lock must be off

Asked by Stranger on 2018-03-16

**** solution

switch it off manually

or (currently only works on Win10 (see related bug))

- check NUM_LOCK state with Key.isLockOn(Key.NUM_LOCK)
- if True (toggle is on) switch it off using type(Key.NUM_LOCK)


I want to select one line text in script by combined keys of HOME and SHIFT, but it dosen't work.
My script is :
type(Key.HOME, Key.SHIFT)
type('C', Key.CTRL)
print Env.getClipboard()

But from UI, the line text can't be selected. Is there any problem in my script? Thanks

But if I run fucntion Env.isLockOn(Key.NUM_LOCK), SikuliX will be exited from process automatically. Why?

Stranger (peterlee007) said : #3

My SikuliX version is V1.1.1

please paste you snippet.
What Windows, Java?

Stranger (peterlee007) said : #5

            if Env.isLockOn(Key.NUM_LOCK):
            if nlZap:
            type(Key.END, Key.SHIFT)
            type('C', Key.CTRL)
            eStr = Env.getClipboard()

This is my script. But when script run at first line, SikuliX will be exited automatically.
My OS is Win7,32bit, Java is Version 8 Update 121(build 1.8.0_121-b13)

ok, thank you.
I have to check the situation on Windows 7.

Sorry, I missed that.

I do not have a Win 7 available currently.

I tested on Win 10-64 and it works as it should.

I used the latest 1.1.3 nightly.

RaiMan (raimund-hocke) said : #11

I found the problem with Windows 7.

It will be fixed with 1.1.4

… until then you have to use the manual solution, sorry.

Can you help with this problem?
