I want to send a keystroke to another app. (16.bit, old)
i've tried:
      CWnd* pDoptT;
      pDoptT      =  GetNextWindow(GW_HWNDNEXT);
      do
      {
        CString strWindowTitle;
          pDoptT->GetWindowText(strWindowTitle);
        if(strWindowTitle.Find("App to receive key") !=-1)
          {
            //found the app i want to send keystrokes
          ::SetForegroundWindow(pDoptT->m_hWnd);
            ::SendMessage(pDoptT->m_hWnd,WM_KEYDOWN, (WPARAM) iVirtKeyCode, (LPARAM) 0);
                  
            }
            pDoptT      = DoptT->GetNextWindow(GW_HWNDNEXT);
      }while(pDoptT != NULL);

somehow the other app does not react, any other solutions?

                       thanx martin

Have you tried passing the character directly to the window?

pDotpT->OnChar( nChar, nRepCnt, nFlags );

or

pDotpT->OnKeyDown( nChar, nRepCnt, nFlags );
