Everything works fine, thanks, but my main problem is to send a character. The 'sendkeys' procedure sends the keystrokes only and what if I had an international characters?
procedure TSendkeys.SendKeysTo(WindowTitle : string; const text: String);

it sends a string
i don't know about international characters though... never work on it...
