hi to all,

i have an app (not from me) which should
be used automatically when it is running.
This app contains one editfield, some checkboxes
and four buttons.
i want to write an app in D3, which puts in the
editfield a certain text and then presses the OK-button.
how i can get the handle of this editfield and the
ok-button ?
i know how to get the handle of this app (by findwindow).
if i would have the handle of the editfield:
the rest would be simple (transfer the text by postmessage
to the editfield).
and how can i get the handle of the ok-button
(there are four buttons in the app) ?

thanks
titz

Use FindWindowEx to get the EditField and OK button's Handle.

If you don't know the EditField's ClassName and Window name,Use WinSight32.exe to get that information. to get the button's handle use same method.

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  H1,H2:THandle;
begin
  H1:=FindWindow(nil,'Form1');
  H2:=FindWindowEx(H1,0,'TEdit','Edit1');
  SendMessage(H2,WM_SETTEXT,0,Integer(PChar('shenqw'))); //Must use Sendmessage.
end;

hi shenqw,

this works good for the editfield, but not for the button.
but do you know what message i have to send for the button ?

or otherwise: when i press the <return>-key is the same as clicking at the button.
how can i simulate this ?
the following does not work:
sendmessage(h2,wm_settext,0,vk_return);

thanks
