How do I activate a child window (e.g. a browser window in a multi-tabbed browser like MyIE2) ?

What does window spy say the control is when you hover over the tab? Send a control click to that control. Then try SENDing keys to the window to get the desired activity.

The classname is IEFrame but that is also the classname for every browser window and every control on each window.

The Last Control Under Mouse is Afx:400000:82 but this is also the same for pretty much every textbox/link etc in the browser window.

I can find no unique number in Spy that relates to the textbox that I want to send the info to.

All the windows in MyIE2 are MDI Clients. Therefore, activate the mdi client you wish to be up front.


Who else would I be?

Can you use the keyboard to get to a certain tab?

If so then use the Send() function to do just that.
