This activity sends text to given web element (control) as a series of keyboard characters typed one at a time (simulates human behavior).
Fill in the custom browser window name. Drop the control on the activity. Choose delay between characters (in milliseconds, 1ms=1/1000s). Text to match is an optional parameter. It is possible to send special characters: you have to convert ASCII code to character, e.g. to send TAB to control put “System.Convert.ToChar(9)” in Text parameter in Input part of Properties window.
