I want to send keystrokes to an application but don't want to use shell to get a window ID. I'd rather use an api call such as one I found here:
Declare Function FindWindow Lib "user32" Alias "FindWindowA" (ByVal lpClassName As String, ByVal lpWindowName As String) As Long
Declare Function SetActiveWindow Lib "user32" (ByVal hwnd As Long) As Long
lhWnd = FindWindow(vbNullString, "My Application")
lOldhWnd = SetActiveWindow(lhWnd)
SendKeys "^(l)", True
SendKeys "%fo", True
For some reason this isn't working for me. I get a value for lhWnd but the SetActiveWindow returns 0 and the keystrokes arent sent to the desired application. If u can see what I'm doing wrong please let me know.
