Assistance with netsend via visual studio6 SP5

I have a form that I have one combo box that is populated with several user names, a multiline text box for messages to be typed and a command button labled "send" to send the message.

I want to be able to utilize the net send feature via code for a simple way to communicate a quick message to a user on my network.

Can anyone give me some sample code to get started... ??

try this:

Private Declare Function ShellExecute Lib "shell32.dll" Alias "ShellExecuteA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal lpOperation As String, ByVal lpFile As String, ByVal lpParameters As String, ByVal lpDirectory As String, ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long

Const SW_SHOWNORMAL = 1
Private Sub Form_Load()
    dim Msg as string
    msg = "Hello All"
    ShellExecute Me.hwnd, vbNullString, "net.exe", "send * " & msg , "C:\", 0
End Sub
