    Frodoplayer Isn't Detecting My Keystrokes

    Hi!

    I am writing the complete app for my steering wheel controller and lighting controller. Everything is running smoooooothly except for the Frodoplayer.

    I am able to have my application emulate keypresses properly, so that i can have Wordpad open and press a button on the wheel, and it will put in a "M" for example inside of Wordpad. That's all good. The PROBLEM is when I bring FrodoPlayer to the foreground, the keypress won't do anything...?? I can manually press M on the keyboard and it will go to the next song correctly, but FrodoPlayer will not receive the keypresses properly from the controller application..

    Is there any way for me to be sucessful in this? Perhaps there is a way to use winsock or some other tool to connect to Frodo that will allow me to send commands that way...??? Any suggestions are appriciated! -Brett W

    PS: I am using VB6, and I have tried the SendKeys and a SendKey method.. ??

    Oh yeah, I tried that too, but I am not quite sure I did it right. Would you happen to be able to paste that sample code on here? I am confused about handles and that special stuff.. Thanks Frodo!!!
