Changing mouse position programmatically
Hello everyone. I would like your assistance in learning how to do the following two things in .net:
1. How do I alter the mouse position programmatically?
2. How do I send an event (ie. mouse click event) to a specific control?
Thanks a bunch,

What would be the need to alter the mouse's position? Don't you think you'd be a bit miffed if someone didn't let you move your mouse where you wanted to?

I want a way to automatically resize a datagrid's columns to the correct width. I'm not particularly fond of the method where you iterate through all the rows and set the width according to the widest row.

Is there a .net equivalent of the win32 api sendmessage function?

You could always use this:
That will set your mouse to co-ordinates 200x200 upon clicking a command button.
Public Declare Function SetCursorPos Lib "user32" (ByVal X As Integer, ByVal Y As Integer) As Integer
Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click

Ah nice, thx. I needed this too
Do you also know how to click the left mouse button after you moved the mouse?
Thanks in advance
