look at
SendMessage
WM_KEYDOWN
VK_CONTROL


That should do it...

Hope it helps...

You can also use

         keybd_event( VK_CONTROL,
                      0x45,
                      KEYEVENTF_EXTENDEDKEY | 0,
                      0 );


GOOD LUCK

I want to simulate a continious pressing...

1. simulate a ctrl pressing.
2. do something (while the Ctrl button is still pressed).
3. release the ctrl from being pressed.

The keybd_event makes the status of the control key until

keybd_event( VK_CONTROL,
                      0x45,
                      KEYEVENTF_EXTENDEDKEY | KEYEVENTF_KEYUP,
                      0);

methos calls

So its suitable for you...

GOOD LUCK
