Send Keys


I am facing issue while working with sendkeys keyword:

WebUI.sendKeys(findTestObject(<>), Keys.chord(Keys.ENTER, Keys.CONTROL))

while running this statement, I am getting below error:

com.kms.katalon.core.exception.StepFailedException: Unable to send keys ‘’ to object

Are you using firefox?

If yes, can you try on google chrome browser?

I am using Chrome Browser only.

This is a known issue, and I have a feature request out there to fix it:

Kindly upvote this to give it some attention.

In the meantime, you should use pure selenium to do it. Please check this post for a workaround:
