    you want your computer to simulate a mouse click, or keyboard
    hit so that your computer will do something?

    Using Windows? If so, look up SendMessage.

    That covers the message to the computer part, only if youre using Win32 programming however.. but it doesnt cover the simulating a keystroke or mouse click without doing it physically. Anyone know that part?
    Warning: Have doubt in anything I post.
