    Sending Text to Notepad

    I used to have a program I made that would write text into Notepad's EDIT box. I forgot what I used to do that and can't find the method or function anywhere on the internet. I have a handle on Notepad's window but would I use the SendMessage function to write text into Notepad? Thanks.

    I've tried that already, all that does is set NotePad's title not it's EDIT box text.

    SendMessageTimeout.

    I trust that helps jog your memory.
