    closing the Save_As dialog kills the application?!?


    I have a client application that I want to control. There are some buttons on that application's toolbar. Say clicking buttonA will process some stuff and ultimately display a Save_As dialog box.

    In my own win32 program, I have a toolbar with 2 buttons. Clicking the first button emulates clicking buttonA on the other application (which means a Save As dialog box will appear). Clicking the second button emulates clicking the "Save" button on the dialog box...

    Now, the WEIRD thing is: If I click the first button, then the 2nd button of my program myself, everything is fine. But, if I programmatically emulate the clicking of the two buttons, the dialog box closes, nothing is saved, and the client application gets killed too! Why is that?? I could provide the spy++ messages on the dialog box "Save" button if needed.

    Any comments will be greatly appreciated!
    Yee Seng.

    Sounds like you are sending invalid messages in the emulation of the button clicks.
