    Simulating a key press

    I want a program to simulate a key press so that another program exucuts an action.

    Mainly said prog being , Asheron's call 2.

    I want my program to work on a timer, and lets say,ever minute, press keys 1-3, and have Asheron's call 2 pick up these key presses, and do the action binded to these keys.


    Cheers

    Its called a macro program. And theres tons of them out there. Spend as much time with google as you did clicking POST THIS MESSAGE, and you'll have your program.
    c++->visualc++->directx->opengl->c++;
    (it should be realized my posts are all in a light hearted manner. And should not be taken offense to.)

    Search MSDN for "FindWindow()" and "SendMessage()". That should do it.
