Don't the bots send ENTER? I'd think the answer should be there.

But one thing you could try and this is just a guess is send "\n".

remembering of course that you'll have to escape the \

Code: Select all

wxString EnterString = wxT("\\n");

Complete stab in the dark that.

Another possibility is to use something like wireshark to see what the application sends when you hit enter during a chat.

A quick google shows that guildwars uses port TCP:6112

Might have to do some investigating on your own to confirm that.

Not sure about the \n as all methods tested seemed to have problems with showing upper cases, numbers and quiet some other 'symbols', wich makes splitting up the string and proces every character in it trough a far loop needed in order to have the output == input.

One of the methods to send keys to another process was able to make it into the guildwars client as is.. but i've spend some hours searching & checking out everything, As all methods had the same problem as mentioned above i chosen the most easy one for me to handle. After wich i found that guildwars did not accept the "enter" key.

For now it is solved, I'm using quiet a work around and it finaly works.. When i get more educated in c++ I might see it more clear.

Furthermore I know how wireshark works but c++ network related programming i still need to see.. (specialy interested in databases)

Thx for the help guys!
