    Question VK_* codes

    How do you get a Virtual Key code from the weird code that lParam and wParam give you when there is a key hit. If I am not making sense I'll ask you this... how could I send a key to a window (sendmessage()) and identify that key by it's VK_* code?
    Thanks in advance!

    You could try -

    SendMessage(hWnd,WM_KEYDOWN,VK_THEKEY,0);
