Private Declare Function FindWindow Lib "user32" Alias "FindWindowA" _

(ByVal lpClassName As String, ByVal lpWindowName As String) As Long

Private Declare Function SendMessage Lib "user32" Alias "SendMessageA" _

(ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal wMsg As Long, ByVal wParam As Long, _

As far as I see this these functions get a windows by Classname or Window name.

So there may not be a need to translate this from VB to AU3 since these functions are available natively.

See help file for ControlGetHandle

You can look up by classname using the Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)

Example :

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)
...
$handle = ControlGetHandle("classname=TsShellWinClass", "DsCrowColumn", "TsWinClass10")
Or look for WinGetHandle

And for SendMessage see help file look for "_SendMessage"

This translates the DLLCall you are refering to.

I hope this helps out.

Good point. Look at _SendMessage() in the help file:

_SendMessage

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wrapper for commonly used Dll Call

#Include <misc.au3>

_SendMessage ( hWnd, msg [, wParam = 0 [, lParam = 0 [, return = 0 [, wParam Type = "int" [, lParam Type = "int" ]]]]] )
