Where to start?


I'm planning on making a program that should open up an IE window with a predefined website, then it should send keystrokes to that window.

Need some opinion on where to start...


PS. Im not an C++ expert so basic functions or eplanations would be good and ultimately the program should have some kind of GUI.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Look at the Visual C++ example at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q167658/ it doesn't send keystrokes, but it automates an HTTP POST, if that's what you need.
