Hey guys, didn't we answer this one sometime ago? There is some 'api' thingy that will move the cursor to the right and left, also to the beginning and end of the item. I just can't remember it today. Anyone remember?

Thanks martin for your concern. I searched the forum with the keyword api but i could not find anything related to this. Can i create a pll for the functions not provided in d2kwutil.pll? Sendmessage has all IN parameters and it is not a function but a procedure which will not return anything as per d2kwutil.pll. so i think my requirement cannot be satisfied in d2K.

Have a look at http://www.orafaq.com/forum/m/169453/67467/?srch=beginning+highlight#msg_169453

Also search this forum for 'sendkeys' and perhaps 'win_api_shell'.
