Menu Key for Global send key event

SarahFleury
Level 2
Hello, 
I am trying to press the Menu key with a stage Global send key event. I tried the workaround SHIFT+F10 but it is not recognized in the application I am interacting with. Is there really no direct way of calling the Menu key? 

Thank you !

Hi Sarah,

First I would like you to check the below steps if you are performing the same or not with Global Send Keys action:

1) Always first activate the application window using a '
Win32' element as the first action by using 'Activate' function.

2) Then use '
Global Click On Center' function on the 'UIA', 'AA' or 'Browser' element that you want to click on before providing the Shift +F10 functionality.

3) Then use '
Global Send Keys' function on the 'Application Root' node where you need to use either the +({F10}) or +{F10} command.

If Global Send Keys approach does not work, then just replace step 3 with 'Global Send Key Events' function on the 'Application Root' node where you need to use <{SHIFT}{F10}>{SHIFT}  command.


In order to tell how to interact with the Menu key, can you explicitly tell us which application is it where you are trying to perform this action so that I can check on that as well ?

Dear Devneet, 

The application I am using is Avaloq. The actual situation is that if I try by hand the workaround SHIFT + F10 it is not working. So I would need a direct way to invoke the Menu key, if it exists. Thank you for your precious help.
