Hello dudes! I’m here again with one simple question that is driving me crazy. I need to type a simple asterisk in one of the tests i’m working in to… I just need to do the program I’m testing to multiply some values and to do that, I need to type this character… but I couldn’t solve this until now. I believe that solving this, all the related issues to typing special characters will be solved too. Could anyone help me pls?
Robot Framework is a framework for test automation, which can be used to test many different softwares. That is why we don’t know what kind of software you are testing, so, please say what Library are you using and the type of software where you need to type and asterisk.
(or in other words: Please go straight to the point. You can assume we are here to help.)
Hello Helio! Thank you so much for your attention! I work in a company that build a POS software. So, I need to multiply the products I’m testing the sales. I just left the robot running and executing most of the functions that the software is progammed to do and the most important is saling. What I need to do is something like ‘2 x7891255216225’. To type the ‘x’, to multiply the item, I need to press ‘*’. You know? To do my job, I’m using sikuli library with another ones like faker, PostgreSQLDB, DateTime, String, Collections, etc…
I tried doing like this again. It really didn’t raise any error, it doesn’t types anything tho. Following, we can see the code and the log. But I think I discovered what happens… The system I’m testing doesn’t allow me to type something like ‘shift + 8’ to get the ‘’ it only works if I press the '’ on the numeric keypad so I gonna try to solve this in other way.
