Re: Passing keys or entering text

Rui Fontes


Have you imported the module?

Something like:

from keyboardHandler import KeyboardInputGesture

Thanks Tyler, I'm going to need a bit more background though as I currently get:

NameError: name 'KeyboardInputGesture' is not defined

I'm still very new to this as explained earlier.

Thanks Julien,

Yes I knew of api.getClipData but how to actually get the info from NVDA
memory to being entered on screen was where I got stuck. I was also
unsure of how to write the actual keys that I want to pass when using

Another commonly used standard paste gesture often supported in
terminals is shift+insert
(Insert might need to be doubled to be passed through depending on
your NVDA configuration)

To access the clipboard content programmatically with NVDA, you can
use api.getClipData()

     Hi All,

     I need some direction please on where to start for being able to
     standard keystrokes as part of my gestures or scripts I'm trying to
     write for a Putty app module. IE, I need to be able to paste the
     clipboard contents into a putty window, but as it is emulating a 3270
     mainframe window, Control+V keystroke isn't accepted. I've tried
     () but that can only be used for adding content to files, not
     windows or
     screens it seems.

     How else could I write, type or import the clipboard text to the
     cursor position? Please provide some basic example code if
     possible, as
     I really have no idea.

     I've done some googling, but anything with using keyboard and
     python appears overly complicated for what I'm trying to achieve.
