Hello,

I'm using the Robot class to send commands to windows to control the mouse and keyboard for work. Everything seems to be working fine but for the life of me I cannot send a Ctrl+Alt+Delete command to unlock my workstation so I can begin processing. Has anyone EVER done this before? A simple sniplet of my code is below:
roboCop.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_CONTROL);
roboCop.delay(500);
roboCop.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_ALT);
roboCop.delay(500);
roboCop.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_DELETE);

It seems like when keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_ALT) is called my previous command is released....I have divided this task up and was able to do control V to past and alt A to navigate my menu, but when I put the commands together they don't seem to work.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Ryan Bailey

I would be surprised if this was possible in pure Java, as it would be a serious security problem.

Moving to Swing/AWT...
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
