    Question Sending Keystrokes

    Hi,

    When I used Visual Basic there was a function called SendKeys() that would enable me to simulate keystrokes.

    I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to do this from C++, or even what the Windows API equivalent is?

    Thanks in advance.

    Depends where you want to send them, but SendMessage() is probably what you want (win32 API).
