    I'm unable to get the following key entry sequence to work. It's intended to click on a checkmark box in the login page:

    {USERNAME}{TAB}{PASSWORD}{TAB}{vkey vk_lbutton}{ENTER}
    

    I've not use vkey in any other entry, so I suppose it's possible that this is simply a format error.

    Generally {SPACE} works fine to check a box. e.g.

    {USERNAME}{TAB}{PASSWORD}{TAB}{SPACE}{ENTER} or

    {USERNAME}{TAB}{PASSWORD}{TAB}{SPACE}{TAB}{ENTER}

    Thanks wellread, that works fine.

    Just curious...in what situation would vkey be useful?

    I haven't had an occasion to use {VKEY X} but there might be situations where a corresponding auto-type keystroke placeholder does not exist.

    Note: If you do use it I believe the correct form of the vkey argument is the decimal equivalent of the hex value corresponding to the desired key e.g. {VKEY 13} is equivalent to {ENTER}.
