Re: FW: [program-l] NVDA add-on development questions
Hi Adil,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
The content of Joseph's earlier message is useful for background, if you truly wish to know how the various parts of NVDA, your operating system, etc. come together to provide you with an accessible experience. But in this case, the most important thing to take away from it is that you cannot set the value of an edit field by modifying the NVDA object representation of it.
I did send a separate message to the list, explaining how you can set the text of a standard Windows edit field. Did you try that? If it doesn't work, or if the application is not standard Win32, then you may not be able to achieve what you want from within NVDA. For example, if you're trying to set the content of an edit field on a web page, you definitely should be writing a browser extension instead, not an NVDA add-on.
If you need more info, please tell us what you're trying to achieve, and in which application.
