    Clicking a greyed out command button

    Okay I have a button that disables on mouse over, then reneables when it's moved away. I'v tried doing it this way:

    Code:
    {
    HWND hWndProSpam;
    HWND hWndButton;
    hWndProSpam = FindWindowEx(NULL, NULL, "ThunderRT6FormDC", "Pro Spam 1");
    hWndProSpam = Findwindow
    hWndButton = FindWindowEx(hWndProSpam, NULL, "ThunderRT6CommandButton", NULL);
    EnableWindow(hWndProSpam, 1);
    EnableWindow(hWndButton, 1);
    SendMessage(hWndButton, WM_LBUTTONDOWN, NULL, NULL);
    SendMessage(hWndButton, WM_LBUTTONUP, NULL, NULL);
    
    	return 0;
    }
    But I guess you would have to go way much deeper than using that.

    Someone told me I need to find the EXE name, Handle, buttoname, and to send a click using windows messeges. Any help?

    So what you are saying is that you have a program that you didn't write/or have the source code and it has a button that disables itself when you move the mouse over it?

    Well... your method should work if it doesn't run till after you posistion the mouse over said button, because the second you move the mouse, it will probably disable the button again. Alternatively, you can try tabbing to the button. I have seen those "joke" windows where the buttons move when you try to click on them...tabbing to them and then hitting space bar always worked
