Hi :)
I think it would be nice if in an autotype sequence we could insert a placeholder that execute a command.
Something like "{USERNAME}{EXECUTE:'cmd notepad.exe'}{PASSWORD}
What do you think about it?
thank you

    Running a program mid Auto-Type would probably cause more problems than it solves.
    How do you decide when / if the program has finished?
    Do you interrupt / pause the Auto-Type to run the program?
    If you have told KeePass to stop Auto-Type if the target window changes your sequence will fail.

    cheers, Paul

    It would be something handled by the user. Somehow it could go back to the target window by an Alt+tab or something similar. However, i know that it does need some study but i think that it would give keepass new possibilities.

    You can use {WIN} to open Windows search dialog to start any program via autotype. Adding {delay=50} or so might be useful. With {delay 3000} or so you even may start to autotype into the started program. With this I start some programs out of a mail program although they have nothing to do with mailing - e.g. start a softphone and dial a conference call.
