Hi Scorpion. Im sure you are talking about MMers, Scrollers, Punters, and all the other lame stuff with AOL :)  Well I'll help you. Sendtext is just a command to send the text to the chat, and all you have to do is type
Sendtext "This is Stupid".
Im sure you already knew that though.  You have to subclass the chatroom, and here is a code that will get you going. Study it and learn about it! -Snell

Sub sendtext (TextToSend$)

aol% = FindWindow("AOL Frame25", 0&)
chatlist% = findchildbyclass(aol%, "_AOL_Listbox")
chatwin% = GetParent(chatlist%) 'all this locates the chat
ChatVew% = findchildbyclass(chatwin%, "_AOL_View")
chatedit% = findchildbyclass(chatwin%, "_AOL_Edit")
sndtext% = SendMessageByString(chatedit%, WM_SETTEXT, 0, TextToSend$) 'finds the text you want to send
SendNow% = Sendmessagebynum(chatedit%, WM_CHAR, &HD, 0)  'finds the send button
'Call Click(ChatSend%)  'sends it!
timeout .000001

End Sub

Hi Scorpion2000,
what is BA, and what do you mean with Sendtext?

i really Want to Start But I Donno WHAT All that Is Like AOL% = Findwindow (AOLWindow26.0&) i mean What Does that Mean I Need Serious Help Learning this I Have Tryed i mean i write small stuff like

Sub TimeOut(Duration)
starttime = Timer
Do While Timer - starttime < Duration
I Under Stand that
And i make little programs like

Form1_Load ()
a = 1
Label1 = "BLINK"
Timeout (.5)
a = a + 1
Label1 = ""
If a = 10 then goto Blink Else Goto Blink2
End Sub
 i wrote that but i dont understand all the Crazy looking stuff that looks like it Should be in Programing 3
When iam starting programing 1 once scholl starts
Just keep learning! It'll come to ya. All that Aol% =  stuff is classifying.  See, I had to classify the chatroom before i could send it to there!  IF i didnt classify the chatroom, how would it know where to send the text? You learn though, and get people to help you online (private rooms vb - vb5, vb help, etc.)
