How to send special characters by SendKeys.SendWait() method ?

I am sending this url
method but error displays

System.ArgumentException: 'SendKeys string '{?}client=firefox{-}b{-}d{&}q={%}3A}O' is not valid.'

What I have tried:

I have tried this regex but url becomes useless.

Regex specialChar = new Regex(@"^[a-zA-Z0-9_@.-]*$");

Any help please

You have a number of normal characters in your string surrounded by braces ({ and }). These are not valid special types. See SendKeys.Send(String) Method (System.Windows.Forms) | Microsoft Learn[^] for the full list.

Thanks for your guidance. I had already read this article, but on again reading, I have come to know that I was missing something. I just also put } character in between { and } then my problem has been solved.
