TypeItIn

Post by dsan1326 » Mon Jul 01, 2019 2:12 pm

I want to use typeitin to launch a browser with www.google.com + a query for a subject.

For example: if I am searching for "raspberry pi" I want to use typeitin to launch the browser and execute the search.

How is this possible?

I created a button with the following:

{Ctrl c}{Delay 50}{Var1 GetClip}{run https://www.google.com/webhp?ie=UTF-8#q={Var1}}

It first copies whatever text is selected with Control-C.

It then opens a browser window and navigates to Google with the copied text as the search parameter.

To make this button easier to use, assign it a shortcut key. I use <ALT><CTRL>G.

To use it, highlight the text you want to search for and press Alt-Control-G.

Hope this helps,
Paul.

It's weird, this does not work for me. I see the copied text in the Clipboard group as a new button, but this macro does not paste Var1 at the end of the URL...

Have you tried to increase the delay from 50 to 100?

I have even tried to insert delays of 1200ms between each of the above commands... the Clipboard group shows the text copied as a new button, but the above macro does not output anything as Var1...

For instance:

{Delay 1200}{Ctrl c}{Delay 500}{Var1 GetClip}{Delay 1200}{run https://www.google.com/webhp?ie=UTF-8#q={Var1}}
