Hi,

I have a window with a richedit control. I can load a file into the control with EM_STREAMIN and find required text with EM_FINDTEXTEX. My problem is that I want the program to be able to automatically modify parts of the loaded file, but cannot figure how to send keystrokes to the control. I have tried using:

invoke SendMessage, [ReCtlHnd], WM_NOTIFY, ReCtl, mylParam

and filling the NMHDR and MSGFILTER with the relevant info, but it does not generate a WM_NOTIFY message. i.e. I have an int3 in the WM_NOTIFY section of my WndProc and the above SendMessage does not go there.


How can I simulate keystrokes to a richedit control?

TIA

procyon,

You can use,

keybd_event

Use it once to send a key down event, and then again to send a key up event. You can also use this to send ALT-key and CTRL-key combinations by sending the ALT key down event, then the key down event, then the key up event, and finally the ALT key up event.

hth,

farrier

Looks like I was trying to make things too complicated, lol
