    How to send msgbox over the network


    Im trying to send msgboxes over the network.
    But i can't figur it out.

    I would like my program to send messages to one och more computers.
    In the same way the DOS command "net send" does.
    Ex
    net send client It's a nice weather today.

    Can i use the net send command in VB or is there another solution to this
    problem.

    Greetings
    Per

    Per,

    Try the VB Shell function:

    Shell "net send " & toWhom & " " & strMessage

    Can't guarantee it, but it is worth a try.

    Here is a small routine I use to wrap the net send comand.

    Public Sub SendPopUpMsg(ByVal sComputerName As String, ByVal sMsg As String)
    'use net send to send a popup message to another computer
    'in testing determine that max chars is approximately 2000
    On Error Resume Next
    Dim lResult As Long
    Const iMAXLEN As Integer = 2000
    Dim vbDblQuotes As String

    vbDblQuotes = Chr$(34)

    If Len(sComputerName) > 0 Then
    'in testing get error if len >2000
    If Len(sMsg) > iMAXLEN Then sMsg = Left$(sMsg, iMAXLEN)
    lResult = Shell("net send " & sComputerName & " " & vbDblQuotes & sMsg
    & vbDblQuotes, vbMinimizedNoFocus)
    DoEvents
    End If
    End Sub

    Ciao Per Svensson,

    You can utilized the API function "NetMessageBufferSend"
