Only first character of username is written to account field


I have an application where SecureLogin writes only first character of username to account field. Character is written several times. Same issue with password field. Correct username is stored to Directory and MessageBox show correct username. This is working with 8.1.1 version. Windows 10 requires SecureLogin upgrade and this is not working even with newest 8.7 HF1 hotfix version. This is simple "Type -raw $username" to account field. Can anyone please help me to solve this issue.

Best regards,

Re: Only first character of username is written to account f

Hi Markku,
We are not able to reproduce this issue. Type -raw command worked without any issue on Windows 10 OS on our local environment.
Can you please add some delay before and after "Type -raw" command and check its functionaly (just for debugging purpose).

Also, please try with different application and see whether the issue is specific to an application.

You can try with a simple notepad application.
Title "Untitled - Notepad"
Type "Username: "
Type -raw $username
Type "\n"
Type "Password: "
Type -raw $password

Re: Only first character of username is written to account f


I have tested Type -RFaw with other applicastions and it is working just fine. NXClient is only application with this issue. I have also tested with newwer NXclient version and is is not working. I added constant text to account field and it is writing only first character. Then short delay and write account. Screeen show that Type command is again writin first character of constant text. Nothing from account. Password variable works differently to account field. It is writing some characters from password variable but not all.
