I am trying to use postmessage to trigger a menu bar (like Alt-F), but no matter how much I search, I keep finding an answer that does not work. I have copied the wparam and lparam from spy++ for the Alt-F, and it still doesn't work. When I click 'postmessage', it just dings the speaker. So far I have gathered that it may be due to fAltDown not being set when I postmessage, but nothing seems to work to set that. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

i'm not big on VB and i don't have it installed right now, but in VC++ you'd want to post wParam = "F" and lParam = 536870912. or setting 30th bit of an integer to one (if you need to AND). let me know if this works.

What message do you use ? I did not test it but I would use the WM_SYSKEYDOWN message (or simple : the WM_SYSCHAR).

wParam is VK_F and bit 29 of the lParam is 1 (other bits : just look at spy++)

HTH,
