Force other programs to perform actions
Posted on 2004-11-15
I have 2 programs
1: my own program programmed in vb.net
2: remote capture software for a camera
In the #2 program, when i press F2 it makes a shot.
i need to be able to do the following actions:
1. when i press a button in my program - say "Take" - my program should somehow pass this action as and F2 command to the program #2.
2. when the #2 program gets activated (if it does), i want my program to activate itself in a second.
I guess there is a way to do it, but i know nothing about switching between programs.
Can someone please put detailed explanation for me here?
