Howdy All, I'm writing a non-game related program. The program is in C# and uses SendKeys to simulate user input to another app. I'm using the following to do this:
[System.Runtime.InteropServices.DLLImport("user32.dll")]
private static extern bool SetForegroundWindow(IntPtr hWnd);

...

Process[] Processes = Process.GetProcessesByName("notepad");
foreach(Process p in Processes)
{
    SetForegroundWindow(p.MainWindowHandle);
    SendKeys.SendWait("I'm typing stuff into Notepad.");
}


So what this does is bring the Notepad window into focus and then start sending it key presses. My question is: Is there a way to continue using SendKeys, but not have to bring the application window into focus? Can I type things into Notepad using this method while Notepad is minimized? Thanks for any help you can offer, -Artum.
