Send Control Key


Sends a control key to the terminal.


  • DisplayName - The display name of the activity.
  • Key - The control key to be sent to the terminal.
  • Private - If selected, the values of variables and arguments are no longer logged at Verbose level.
  • DelayMS - Delay time (in milliseconds) after executing the activity. The default amount of time is 300 milliseconds.
  • TimeoutMS - Specifies the amount of time (in milliseconds) to wait for the activity to run before an error is thrown. The default value is 30000 milliseconds (30 seconds).
  • WaitType - Before performing the actions, wait for the target to become ready. The following options are available:
    • None - Does not wait for the terminal keyboard to be enabled.
    • Ready / Complete - Waits for the terminal keyboard to be enabled.
    Note: The Ready and Complete WaitType options have the same function, since the wait type is related to the status of the terminal keyboard (which has only two states: enabled or inhibited).
