If it is a edit-box and you have the hwnd to it, you can use SetWindowText (covered in Win32.hlp)

You can also send wm_char messages to the window and thus type the text character by character. This is the same as actually typing it since when typing in a window all characters are send to the underlying window as windows messages ...

try this code

function SendKeys(Keys:string):boolean;
var
      hw:hwnd;
      i:byte;
Begin
      hw:=getfocus;
      If hw<>0 Then
      begin
            for i:=1 to length(keys) do
                  postmessage(hw, wm_char, word(keys[i]), 1);
            result:=true;
      end
      else
            result:=false;
End;      {SendKeys}
