To send "enter", use VK_ENTER, e.g.

void enter()
{
      BYTE vk = LOBYTE(::MapVirtualKey(VK_ENTER, 0));
 
         keybd_event(VK_ENTER,vk,0,0);
         keybd_event(VK_ENTER,vk,KEYEVENTF_KEYUP,0);
     
}

The problem with "Enter" is that it will send it to the window that currently has the focus. If that is an edit box, that is a line break.

Arg, I'm stupid, it's VK_RETURN - try

Tsk. Don't be so hard on yourself, even Savants have their moments :)

Troudeloup, whilst I am appreciative of the points, I did nothing to assist this in this question (I just poked fun at our new Savant) and jkr should have been awarded the full points.

Jkr, I will not object if you want to revert this question back to an open status so that Troudeloup can close it appropriately.
