VB6 SendKeys

How do I get back to tab position #1 ie:

I want the 4th box to say "Hello":
    WebBrowser2.SetFocus
    SendKeys ("{Tab}")
    SendKeys ("{Tab}")
    SendKeys ("{Tab}")
    SendKeys ("Hello")

Then I want the 3rd box to say "World":
    WebBrowser2.SetFocus
    SendKeys ("{Tab}")
    SendKeys ("{Tab}")
    SendKeys ("World")

Can you use Shift-Tab to backup one field at a time:

 SendKeys ("+{Tab}")

"+" is the shift key.  Repeat that as many times as you need.  Does that work for you?

-to simplify your codes, you can use for-loop:

 WebBrowser2.SetFocus
 For i = 1 to 3
    SendKeys ("{TAB}"), True
 Next i
 SendKeys "Hello"
 SendKeys ("+{TAB}")

and you might want to look at this example using keyboard event: http://www.freevbcode.com/ShowCode.Asp?ID=340

have you tried using the elements of the webbrowser control rather than sendkeys.  SendKeys is quite unreliable as it relies upon an application not losing focus or repainting.

if you can look at the webpage source and post the relevant parts, we can help determine the elements you wish to reference and set them diagrammatically rather than using sendkeys.

if you want to write any of those words at a particular control, e.g textbox, you can call textbox1.setfocus() instead.
