Thread: Event Type: Multiple Keystrokes

    Event Type: Multiple Keystrokes

    It would be great if a message could generate a long string of text as if it came from the keyboard. ie: I press a key on a midi controller and "Hello world" appears in a specific/frontmost application (just like Key Combo and Key Code do now).

    Hi Rob,

    I recently discovered this is something you can do easily with AppleScript.
    In OSCulator, open the Parameters window and go to the AppleScript tab.
    Create a new script and write this code:

    Code:
    tell application "System Events"
        keystroke "abcdef"
    end tell

    You can even write code like this to ensure the application you want to send you keystrokes to is foremost:

    Code:
    tell application "TextEdit"
        activate
    end tell
    tell application "System Events"
        keystroke "abcdef"
    end tell

    Best,
    Cam

    Update: You need to create an empty document in TextEdit in order to test this code. If leave TextEdit with the initial Open dialog, this won't work.
