I'm not sure that you need to send messages to a control from a form (maybe you need a spash screen :) ) but this is, I think, what you ask:

using System.Runtime.InteropServices;


public const uint WM_LBUTTONDOWN = 0x201;
public const uint WM_LBUTTONUP = 0x202;

[DllImport("user32.dll", EntryPoint = "SendMessageA")]
public static extern uint SendMessage(IntPtr hWnd, uint  wMsg, uint wParam, uint lParam);


SendMessage(buttonOK.Handle, WM_LBUTTONDOWN, 0, 0);
SendMessage(buttonOK.Handle, WM_LBUTTONUP, 0, 0);
