I'm using Winspector to find the window structure to the window I want to send the message to.  However I have come across a problem in that there is sever Windows refered to as TPanel.  How would I reference each one?  I have attached the code that I'm using which returns the windows handle and prints it in notepad.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Dim hwndslx As Integer = FindWindow("TmdiMain", vbNullString)
    Dim slxa As Integer = FindWindowEx(hwndslx, 0, "MDIClient", vbNullString)
    Dim slxb As Integer = FindWindowEx(slxa, 0, "TfrmNewMainView", vbNullString)
    Dim slxc As Integer = FindWindowEx(slxb, 0, "TPanel", vbNullString)

Open in new window

Hi meteorelec,

Refer to the image below.  I have labeled the Panels "A" thru "F".

You should be able to do it like this:
(I'm assuming you correctly found the "TfrmNewMainView" window)

    Dim hwndslx As Integer = FindWindow("TmdiMain", vbNullString)
    Dim slxa As Integer = FindWindowEx(hwndslx, 0, "MDIClient", vbNullString)

    Dim TfrmNewMainView As Integer = FindWindowEx(slxa, 0, "TfrmNewMainView", vbNullString)
    Dim TPanelA As Integer = FindWindowEx(TfrmNewMainView, 0, "TPanel", vbNullString)
    Dim TPanelB As Integer = FindWindowEx(TfrmNewMainView, TPanelA, "TPanel", vbNullString)
    Dim TPanelC As Integer = FindWindowEx(TPanelB, 0, "TPanel", vbNullString)
    Dim TPanelD As Integer = FindWindowEx(TPanelB, TPanelC, "TPanel", vbNullString)
    Dim TPanelE As Integer = FindWindowEx(TPanelD, 0, "TPanel", vbNullString)
    Dim TPanelF As Integer = FindWindowEx(TPanelE, 0, "TPanel", vbNullString)
    ...
