#522 [1.x] Auto-Type Problem


In version 1.07 I had defined the following rules for my yahoo mail account and It had been working well inside Pidgin

Auto-Type: {PASSWORD}
Auto-Type-Window-1: Pidgin

Now in version 1.08, It does not. In the middle of typing, it suddenly jumps out of the password field and therefore not all characters are typed. My password is a mixture of alpha-numeric along with special characters. though It used to work in 1.07.

    Try KeePass 1.09 and let me know if it works here or not.

    Note that you should use "Auto-Type-Window" for the first auto-type sequence definition, not "Auto-Type-Window-1".

    Thanks and best regards

    Still not working

    Sorry, the rules (1.07) was actually as below (I just omitted the second line for simplicity)

    Auto-Type: {PASSWORD}
    Auto-Type-Window: *Yahoo*
    Auto-Type-Window-1: Pidgin

    my password is 32 characters long
    using the above rules, auto-type only types the first 8 characters of the password

    however, if I change the rules to

    Auto-Type: {PASSWORD}
    Auto-Type-Window: Pidgin

    30 characters will be typed

    and if using

    Auto-Type: {PASSWORD}
    Auto-Type-Window-1: Pidgin

    31 chars will be typed

    i have noticed a different behaviour with figures (0-9) in the password when have NUM locked or unlocked. with NUM unlocked (notebook), the autotype does not work porperly. with NUM locked (full keyboard) it works. I am not a programmer, but maybe it makes a difference using the numbers from the keyboard above the letters (a-z) instead of them NUM-block.
    Hope that helps locating the problem.
    I am using Win7 64bit Notebook, Keepass 2.24

    I see you've already tested the latest dev and it seems to be fine.
    Please pop a note in threads you've posted to - saves us some effort.

    cheers, Paul
