Sending keys that have special meaning.

This article describes how  to send the keys that have special meaning (plus sign(+), caret (^), percent sign (%), tilde (~), and parentheses () ) using send keys


There can be a situation where you want to send some keys which have some special meaning.For eg. The plus sign (+), caret (^), percent sign (%), tilde (~), and parentheses() have special meanings to SendKeys.



To specify one of these characters,enclose it within curly braces .For example, to specify the plus sign, use {SENDKEYS["{+}"]}.To specify brace characters, use {SENDKEYS["{{}"]} and {SENDKEYS["{}}"]}. For caret(^) use {SENDKEYS["{^}"]} and so on.

So we need to enclose each single special characters into braces individually?

e.g. to send in a string like "{+^+}", we need to use {SENDKEYS["{{}{+}{^}{+}{}}"]}

is that correct?
