Ok im working on the program that send key commans to another application.
It seems this application doesn't see Alt or Control combinations using
.nets SendKeys.Send
or windows APIs:SendMessage, SendInput, keybd_event, or SetKeyboardState

most of these methods work fine when sending a "normal" key
but when a combination is send the application reacts as if the Alt key was not sent

I have been looking all over the place and it seems it might be because the application the receive the key events uses directx

Any one have any experience with this type of issue.........fyi im working in C#
