Type Command


type <text> [with shiftKey] | [with OptionKey] |
[with commandKey]


The type command simulates typing at the keyboard by typing characters at the insertion point. When using the type command from a script, choose the text tool before selecting an insertion point. If the [with commandKey] option is used, no text is typed, but rather the equivalent keyboard shortcut is performed.


The text insertion point is placed by clicking in an unlocked field or dataSheet with the Browse tool or by sending the tabKey message. Paint text can be typed at the text insertion point on a card or background by selecting the Paint Text tool before using the type command
