I've created a AutoTyper in Java today, i've got it handling brackets etc.
Now i'm trying to get it to push out the @ symbol, by doing the method below:
1  
2  
3  
4  
5  
6  
7  
8  
9  
10  
11  
12  
13  
14  
15  
   private void typeCharacter(int character) {
      try {
         switch (character) {
         case '@':
            robot.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_SHIFT); // hits shift, enabling the @ symbol.
           robot.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_NUMPAD2); // hits the @ symbol.
           robot.keyRelease(KeyEvent.VK_NUMPAD2); // releases the @ symbol.
           break;
         default:
            robot.keyPress(character);
         }
      } catch (IllegalArgumentException ee) {
         ee.printStackTrace();
      }
   }


Only way I can think of doing it, basically the same way i'd do it on my keyboard, Shift + numPad 2 = '@', but half the time it just spits out the # '2'?

Kind of a short post for a big problem to me lol, if anyone needs some methods or some snippets of teh code let me know Smiley.

I took your code and switched
1  
2  
robot.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_NUMPAD2); // hits the @ symbol. 
robot.keyRelease(KeyEvent.VK_NUMPAD2); // releases the @ symbol.

into
1  
2  
robot.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_2); // hits the @ symbol.
robot.keyRelease(KeyEvent.VK_2); // releases the @ symbol.

and it works for me x).

To be safe mabye you should include this after releasing the #2 key.
1  
robot.keyRelease(KeyEvent.VK_SHIFT); // releases the shift key

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Invalid key code
   at sun.awt.windows.WRobotPeer.keyPress(Native Method)

   at auto.typer.ui.Gui.typeMessage(Gui.java:176)
   at auto.typer.ui.Gui$1.run(Gui.java:139)

That will most likely give me double quotes ("). @ is Alt Gr-2 for me.
