Automating Managed WinForms Applications... .

Hi All,

Have anybody seen somewhere techniques like the one described here:

Automating Windows Applications

but for managed WinForms application?

Basically what is needed:

- inject unmanaged .DLL into managed application;
- from this unmanaged .DLL load managed ClassLibrary having one or more
classes with registered CCW;
- allow access to injected managed ClassLibrary to the main thread's
active(shown) WinForms and their controls given a these WinForms' and
controls' HWNDs. By "allowing access" I mean manipulating properties' values
of shown WinForms and Controls...

Thank you in advance for any information on subject.

I am using Managed C++ with a CFormView and a MaskedTextBox and have used MAKE_DELEGATE to sink the LostFocus event of this control. I have other events I've sinked off this control and they all work fine, however, the LostFocus does not fire. I found Scribble online and they do the same thing I did, however, when I used this code in Visual Studio 2005 the LostFocus event didn't get fired either.

Guys, I've been designing applications for the financial services industry using MSFT technologies for many years (Win32 API, MFC, and now .NET WinForms). All applications are Internet-based, with a "thick client" which makes calls to my grid of servers via a socket or remoting connection. Customers are pleased with my work but it seems that over the past twelve months or so, those same customers have expressed a strong demand to...

Here I am learning WinForms and two months into it I learn there's a WPF API that is coming out. Is this WPF out yet, and is it a threat to WinForms, in the sense that all the library routines I memorize and/ or familiarize myself in WinForms will disappear in WPF? I did note in one early version of C#, the non-generic "ArrayList" was replaced by the generic and template <based List, but that kind of change is not a big deal. If WPF...
