This one might be a tricky one. I have a timer with a 1 minute interval. Every minute i'm wanting
to simulate a key press of for example '5' onto the active window (whatever that may be at the time,
notepad etc). Maybe there's a way of just copying the number 5 and pasting it into the active window,
but so far all i've come up with is the following Delphi code:
PostMessage( GetForeGroundWindow( ), WM_KEYDOWN, VK_NUMPAD5, 0);
Just to recap, i'd open my Delphi application, and then tab to something like notepad. Then in one
min from opening the app it would print a 5 on the notepad or whatever the active window is at the
(whatever my cursor is on at the time).

Nevermind, i've found a component called SendKeys which does the job.
