pyautogui doesn't sends ascii char to program - it sends to system key code normally used for this char and system uses this key code to send char to program.
But if system uses non-standard layout for keyboard then it can send different char then we expect.
import time import pyautogui time.sleep(2) # time to change window pyautogui.typewrite('!')
! (using key code for key
1 which normally is used to type
!) but for some layouts (ie. France layout) it can send
§ (because key
1 is used to type
It can't send also native chars because it doesn't have defined key codes for native chars.
This code will send nothing.
import time import pyautogui time.sleep(2) # time to change window pyautogui.typewrite('ĄĘŚĆ!')
Probably only using clipboad you can send it correctly.
import time import pyperclip import pyautogui time.sleep(2) # time to change window pyperclip.copy('ĄĘŚĆ!') pyautogui.hotkey('ctrl', 'v')
If you will use clipboard to copy single char and wait
0.1s between chars then you can get similar result to
import time import pyperclip import pyautogui time.sleep(2) # time to change window for char in 'ĄĘŚĆ!': pyperclip.copy(char) pyautogui.hotkey('ctrl', 'v', interval=0.1)
BTW: you can see all key codes using
import pyautogui #print(pyautogui._pyautogui_win.keyboardMapping) # Window print(pyautogui._pyautogui_x11.keyboardMapping) # Linux
You may even change values in
keyboardMapping to send different key code
For example this
import pyautogui #pyautogui._pyautogui_win.keyboardMapping['!'] = 12 # Windows pyautogui._pyautogui_x11.keyboardMapping['!'] = 12 # Linux pyautogui.typewrite('!!!')
### instead of
12 is key code for
