How do I send keystrokes to an inactive window?

Recommended Posts

I would like to be able to simulate pressing hotkeys in inactive windows while working in a different active window. The Send() function description states it sends keystrokes to the active window -- is it possible to use it to send keystrokes to an inactive window?

ControlSend() allow specification of an inactive window to receive the input. If you don't know the control, you can just specify the window and leave the controlID = "".

:D
