Ok, so now we know it’s not a web app. Which platform are you
developing on? What toolkit? Or are you driving a second app from your
ruby script? Can you show us some code?

Hi Mihai,

This may be a GUI toolkit specific issue.
So, you need to look for the hint into the gui toolkit(eg. GTK, QT, Tk)
specifications.

All the best,

This to me sounds like you’re trying to achieve keyboard and mouse
emulation. Is this correct?

That’s what I mean by depends… it depends greatly on the
environment you want it to work in. Unfortunately this sort of thing
can be very implementation specific. Unix shell? Dos box? Windows? OS
X ? KDE?
All have their own ways of doing this stuff.
