    Question Sending keystrokes to another view

    I have a simple application with two splitter views. I want to send keystrokes to an edit control in view1 by clicking a button in the view2.

    I have been able to send keystrokes to another window but sending keystrokes to another view of the same window doesn't seem to work.

    Need urgent help.

    That would require platform specific windowing routines (If that kind of thing is available), or even maybe even a separate windowing library altogether.

    This is very dependent on what you are using. MFC provides methods to do exactly what you want but if you are not using MFC describing how to do it here is pointless.

    Need more info.
