     This is for beginners who want to begin using API in order to manipulate other programs. This is VERY heavily commented (About a paragraph per line of code) and explains how to use API to manipulate other programs through several examples. Learn how to change a window's caption and send text to a textbox on a program (Notepad used in this example) and learn how to press buttons on a program (Calcualor used in this example) If you are a beginner and really serious about learning what the code actually means and how to understand the concepts than this is a great place to start. I wish somebody made something this detailed when I started... Don't forget to vote if you find this useful in anyway!

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
