Do you want to TRAP a space bar keypress or SEND a space bar keypress?

If the latter, use SendKeys.Send().

Make sure the app has focus, then use SendKeys.Send():
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.forms.sendkeys.send.aspx

Something like:

    SendKeys.Send(" ");

If that doesn't work then you may need to use Win APIs to simulate the keypress at the keyboard level.  You can use keybd_event() or SendInput() for that.

Below are some links that show them being used, though not for Space bar in particular.

keybd_event():

SendInput():
