SendKeys.Flush Method

Processes all the Windows messages currently in the message queue.

[Visual Basic]
Public Shared Sub Flush()
public static void Flush();
public: static void Flush();
public static function Flush();


Use Flush to wait for the application to process keystrokes and other operating system messages that are in the message queue. This is equivalent to calling Application.DoEvents until there are no more keys to process.

Note   Because there is no managed method to activate another application, you can either use this class within the current application or use native Windows methods, such as FindWindow and SetForegroundWindow, to force focus on other applications.


Platforms: Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0, Windows Millennium Edition, Windows 2000, Windows XP Home Edition, Windows XP Professional, Windows Server 2003 family
