Here you go:

     Shell "rundll rnaui.dll,RnaDial NAME", vbNormalFocus

where: NAME is the dial-up network name... For example, If my Dialup network name is: Erols Internet

Then I would do:

     Shell "rundll rnaui.dll,RnaDial Erols Internet", vbNormalFocus



Once you do the

   Shell "rundll rnaui.dll,RnaDial NAME", vbNormalFocus

You can use the following code to set focus to the dial window and use sendkeys...


Cheers!

ADD THIS TO A MODULE:
------------------------------------------------------------
Private Const GWL_ID = (-12)

Private Declare Function GetWindowText Lib "user32" Alias "GetWindowTextA" _

    (ByVal hwnd As Long) As Long

Function IsActive(hprog) As Long
    Dim hProc, RetVal As Long
    'hProc = OpenProcess(0, False, hprog)
    hProc = OpenProcess(0, hprog, False)
    If hProc <> 0 Then GetExitCodeProcess hProc, RetVal
    IsActive = (RetVal = 259)
    CloseHandle hProc
End Function

Function FindWindowLike(hWndArray() As Variant, ByVal hWndStart As Long, WindowText As String, Classname As String, ID) As Long
    Dim hwnd As Long
    Dim r As Long
    ' Hold the level of recursion:
    Static level As Long
    ' Hold the number of matching windows:
    Static iFound As Long
    Dim sWindowText As String
    Dim sClassname As String
    Dim sID
    ' Initialize if necessary:
    If level = 0 Then
        iFound = 0
        ReDim hWndArray(0 To 0)
        If hWndStart = 0 Then hWndStart = GetDesktopWindow()
    End If
    ' Increase recursion counter:
    level = level + 1
    ' Get first child window:
    hwnd = GetWindow(hWndStart, GW_CHILD)
    Do Until hwnd = 0
        DoEvents ' Not necessary
        ' Search children by recursion:
        r = FindWindowLike(hWndArray(), hwnd, WindowText, Classname, ID)
        ' Get the window text and class name:
        sWindowText = Space(255)
        r = GetWindowText(hwnd, sWindowText, 255)
        sWindowText = Left(sWindowText, r)
        sClassname = Space(255)
        r = GetClassName(hwnd, sClassname, 255)
        sClassname = Left(sClassname, r)
        ' If window is a child get the ID:
        If GetParent(hwnd) <> 0 Then
            r = GetWindowLW(hwnd, GWL_ID)
            sID = CLng("&H" & Hex(r))
        Else
            sID = Null
        End If
        ' Check that window matches the search parameters:
        If sWindowText Like WindowText And sClassname Like Classname Then
            If IsNull(ID) Then
                ' If find a match, increment counter and
                '  add handle to array:
                iFound = iFound + 1
                ReDim Preserve hWndArray(0 To iFound)
                hWndArray(iFound) = hwnd
            ElseIf Not IsNull(sID) Then
                If CLng(sID) = CLng(ID) Then
                    ' If find a match increment counter and
                    '  add handle to array:
                    iFound = iFound + 1
                    ReDim Preserve hWndArray(0 To iFound)
                    hWndArray(iFound) = hwnd
                End If
            End If
        End If
        ' Get next child window:
        hwnd = GetWindow(hwnd, GW_HWNDNEXT)
    Loop
    ' Decrement recursion counter:
    level = level - 1
    ' Return the number of windows found:
    FindWindowLike = iFound
End Function

Function LocateWindow(Source As String) As Boolean
    Static hWnds() As Variant
    Dim RetVal As Long
    Dim AppTitle As String
         
    If FindWindowLike(hWnds(), 0, Source, "*", Null) = 1 Then
        ProgHandle = hWnds(1)
        RetVal = SetFocusAPI(ProgHandle)
        DoEvents
        LocateWindow = True
    Else
        LocateWindow = False
    End If
End Function

------------------------------------------------------------

In your program, you can then do this:

do
    If LocateWindow("Connect To...") = True Then
        SendKeys "WHATEVER YOU'RE GONNA SEND", True
        Exit Do
    End If
    DoEvents
Loop
------------------------------------------------------------

When LocateWindow is called, you use whatever is in the title bar of the application you're trying to find.  It will set focus, and you just have to send the keys you want.


You can find the dialup name by going into the registry and getting the key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\RemoteAccess\InternetProfile

You could also look in the registry under the key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Account Manager\Accounts\00000001\Connectoid

The following microsoft KB article shows you how to get information from the registry:

Yes, the code launches the dialup networking..

In the call:

   Shell "rundll rnaui.dll,RnaDial NAME", vbNormalFocus


NAME is the name of a dialup networking item in the dialup folder. But, the user doesn't have give you the name... You can get the name from the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\RemoteAccess\InternetProfile


Cheers!
