Question about sending to CTRL+CHAR in Chat Window

Not sure if this has been answered before but I can only find a post about a different thing which tends to indicate no it is not. Thought I would ask though.

Is it possible to send something like CTRL+C to sessions from the chat window ?

I would like to send things like that to multiple sessions or a single session.

For example:

Pinging a destination from multiple sessions and killing it with CTRL+C

1. Open up the chat window
2. Enable send chat to all sessions
3. Send ping 123.123.123.123
4. Send CTRL+C to stop the ping in all sessions

Thanks

It is possible to map a button to send Ctrl-C to the Chat window. To create a button that sends Ctrl-C:
  • Enable Button Bar in the View menu if it isn't already enabled
  • Right click on the button bar and select New Button
  • Send String is the Function you want
  • In the Send String box type \003
  • In the Label box type Ctrl-C (or something descriptive)
  • Press the OK button
Will this help you?

That did not work. The button works but only sends a CTRL+C to the current active session. So you still have to go to each open session and use the button. I do have send chat to all tabs enabled and the version is 6.5.4 Build 555.

Thanks

You're correct, Ctrl-C is currently only sent to a single window, not to all windows. I've added your forum posts to our request database and we will post a follow up message to this forum thread if we enhance the Chat window support for escape sequences in a future release. Let us know and reference forum thread 6347 if you'd like to receive e-mail notification should we add support.

The only workaround I know of at this time would be to run a script that brings each tab to the foreground and sends Ctrl-C.

The ability to send a button action to all tabbed or tiled sessions has been added to a pre-beta version of SecureCRT. If you would be interested in trying it, please send e-mail to me at Maureen.Jett@vandyke.com.
