No Home, End, and Insert keys?


In XType, can it really be true there is no simulation of the Home, End, and Insert keys? They’re not listed on the doc page and I tried ${KEY_HOME} and got the error message “variable KEY_HOME is not defined”.

I’ve had to simulate Home with multiple Ctrl-Lefts, but that won’t work in all cases.

For that Ctrl-Left workaround, is there a way to send a sequence of repeated keystrokes? Right now, my Home simulation consists of five XType commands, each with a target of five ${KEY_CTRL+KEY_LEFT}s. Not very elegant!

Indeed, Home , End , and Insert keys are not yet supported by XType, but I added it to our todo list for the next XModule updates now. Thanks again for your hint.


Really need KEY_HOME to set the element to initial state. Otherwise I have to hit KEY_UP a hundred times in my case.


Thanks for your “vote” for this feature. The “missing keys” are on our todo list and will be available in the near future :slight_smile:
