    Yeah, you would have to research spy++. I'm not sure how to do it, I've never needed it. You might want to do a search on www.google.com, that might come up with something!


    yes it is possible
    That was an absolutely useless post!

    Spy++ will allow you to find the window that holds the edit (Its name and windows class).........with FindWindow() and FindWindowEx() (this finds child windows from the return of FindWindow()) you can gain a handle to that window and then using SendMessage() you can do loads of fun stuff with it

    Hey, it answered the question, unlike this absolutely useless post.
    If you own a piece of land and there is an volcano on it and it ruins a
    nearby town, do you have to pay for the property damage?
