Using PostMessage to make a TBitBtn's OnClick event fire

Hi,

I have a TBitBtn, is it possible to programmatically make its OnClick event fire with PostMessage (without the user actually clicking on the button)?  If so, could you please give me an example.

I would like to use PostMessage rather than calling OnClick directly so it adds it to the message queue rather than firing it immediately in the current event.

Thanks in Advance,

Richard

sure

PostMessage(ButtonHandle, WM_LBUTTONDOWN, 0, 0);
PostMessage(ButtonHandle, WM_LBUTTONUP, 0, 0);

where ButtonHandle is the buttons handle
eg. Button1.Handle
