Little win32 question

Recommended Posts

Sorry, because Im sure this question is asked alot, but ive tried using the forum search but everything I put comes up as all ignored words. Anyway I would like to know how I move the keyboards cursor to a certian control. I tried getting the handle of the control and then using SetFocus() but with little luck. I''ve also tried using the handle of the control with SetActiveWindow() and SetCapture(). Any ideas on what Im missing? Thanks Ballistic Programs

SetFocus has the restriction that the window (control) must be associated with the calling thread''s message queue. If you''re not sure, try calling AttachThreadInput (you may need GetCurrentThreadId and GetWindowThreadProcessId to obtain the proper arguments).
