Autotype a tickbox

    Hi all
    I have to set up a login for a site that asks me to tick a tickbox after entering username/password.
    Any ideas how to do this using the autotype capability?
    I've tried embedding a space in the autotype text (as in "\u\t\p\t \n") but this doesn't seem to work. The space gets transmitted, but the website doesn't see it as a tick -in contrast to doing it manually where the spacebar does tick the box. I've tried slowing it down with \W1 either side of the space, that doesn't help. All ideas/thoughts gratefully received.

    Chris, try using \z at the beginning. I just did a bit of experimenting, and it worked in a similar situation. So your autotype text would be "\z\u\t\p\t \n".
