Why am I unable to type Chinese Characters when using the TypeKeys method?

Why am I unable to type Chinese Characters when using the TypeKeys method?

The Typekeys function mimics human keyboard interactions. There is no Virtual Key definition (VK_) in the Operating System for Chinese characters, so users cannot type one key to generate a Chinese character. As a result of this neither can SilkTest via Typekeys().

Usually, users need IME (Input Method Editors) to type in Chinese characters, which use a sequence of keys to specify one Chinese character. Depending on the different input method of IME, the sequence varies alot.

To use the TypeKeys function for Chinese characters you must use the key sequence as the parameters to the function not the Chinese characters themselves.
