I want to simulate a keypress when a window with a certain classID has focus.  I think I get the findwindow(), but I'm having trouble with the keypress.  Sorry, the points are so low, I'm almost out :(

Once the window has focus you can use VB's SendKeys function.

I can't find SendKeys anywhere in the Win32API?

SendKeys is a VB command.

SendKeys "Text to send"

SendKeys "{ENTER}"

You will find it in VB Help.
