Keywords: return enter send editbox
The problem I'm hitting is this: when I attempt to commit the changes to the edit boxes, I'm forced to send a RETURN keystroke because there is no 'OK' button or 'COMMIT' button or any buttons at all for that matter. The developers of this program expect the user to simply hit the ENTER key.
Is there any way I can get the cSetEditBox to submit a RETURN keystroke? If I append @CRLF to the text that goes into the edit box, the characters @CR and @LF are interpreted literally by the edit box. that is, the box displays two invalid characters (after the text that's supposed to be in there). Perhaps there is a way to 'escape' the @CRLF?
I wonder if changing focus, using cSetFocus, to another control, whether it will commit changes to the edit box...
Maybe the cSendMessage function can be made to work, but what numbers to use. Whether or not you can do this may depend on how familiar you are with Windows programming and various debugging tools. What *I* would do is get a copy of some WIndows message Spy utility and try to capture some of the windows message traffic that happens when you press the enter key, and try to slip my own message in to replace what is missing when the enter key is hit in the script.
WM_CHAR = 258 cSendMessage( Hwnd, WM_CHAR, 13, 1835009 )
