Hi, I am coding a project in VB6 to control an external application using SendKeys (sometimes tab characters) and Wait statements.  I am looking for a way to upgrade the program to use the Windows API SendMessage command?  The primary goal of this upgrade is to allow other use of the computer while the project is executing; during the execution of the current project, the external application must be active with focus.
