Description:
Here is what I need. I need in VB 6.0 only a way to paste the following characters into AIM where you type a message.

(See the attachment for the characters since it is html formatted.)

I have worked on this ALL DAY and cannot do it. It MUST be pasted in because when it is, the text changes to a smile face icon by AIM.

I can send the text by using SendMessage but it does not change to the icon. I tried the SendKeys and WM_PASTE with sendmessage and nothing gets pasted. Either I am doing it wrong or AIM has blocked it. But I can do a Control-V on my keyboard and see it get pasted and change to an icon.

The VB app has a button that will paste is to AIM.

BEFORE YOU BID - Try doing it yourself. If you see you made it work, send me a demo. You can just have a textbox where I enter the handle of the textbox in AIM and another textbox with the characters to paste. I want to type in a different one to see it working also.

If you know how to do this, making a demo would only take 10 minutes. I request a demo on small stuff like that that I cannot make work.

I am using AIM 5.1.3036 so that should help. And it must work on Windows 95 through XP.


Update to post: I forgot to attach the zip file. It is there now. It just has a small .txt file showing the characters it needs to paste.



Deliverables:
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.

2) Installation package that will install the software (in ready-to-run condition) on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.

3) Complete ownership and distribution copyrights to all work purchased.



Platform:

here is the code to do it.
only looking for some feedback, can't seem to get any bids accepted with a 0 rating.

the code will take what ever is on the clipboard and paste it the given aim window handle. i tested with your smily text and it put it in correctly

Private Const WM_COMMAND = &H111
Private Const WM_CHAR = &H102

Private Sub Command1_Click()

SendMessage &H2088E, WM_COMMAND, 591, 1
SendMessage &H2088E, WM_CHAR, 16, &H2F0001

End Sub
