I want to know the Reason
that keybd_event("Tab") doesn't
working in ExecWB.

Where is this code Wrong?

 void CMyHtmlView::OnNavigateComplete2(LPCTSTR strURL)
{
// TODO: Add your specialized code here and/or call the base class

ExecWB(OLECMDID_SAVEAS, OLECMDEXECOPT_PROMPTUSER, NULL, NULL);

HWND aWnd = (HWND)GetActiveWindow();

::SetActiveWindow(aWnd);

::keybd_event(VK_TAB,MapVirtualKey(VK_TAB,0),0,0);

::keybd_event(VK_TAB,MapVirtualKey(VK_TAB,0),KEYEVENTF_KEYUP,0);
      
CHtmlView::OnNavigateComplete2(strURL);
}

The ExecWB does not return until it is done. That means the dialog box is no longer there when keybd_event is executed. There seems no way to achieve what you want.

Then can I access and handle
the dialog box
that ExecWB created.

Isn't there any solution?

You may create another thread right befoer ExecWB. In that thread, try to use FindWindow to locate the dialog box. But this method is not stable and very ugly.

Use AfxBeginThread to create a worker thread. See the documentation on AfxBeginThread and the article Multithreading: Creating Worker Threads in Visual C++ Programmer’s Guide.
