Can someone help me with the implementation of KillProcessBy

Postby Neophyte185 » July 29th, 2005, 1:57 pm

I have figured out how to generate a simple Delphi 7 form with a button in it which will run an executable.

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
ShellExecute
(Form1.Handle, 'open', 'c:\E3238s\bin\E3238s.exe',
nil, nil, SW_SHOWNORMAL);
end;
end.

My problem is I need to know how to access the menus that are a part of this executable. For example how would I access the FILE menu in order to select EXIT.

In light of the lack of a simple solution I am considering a different approach.
I will use the SHELLEXECUTABLE and a timer from Delphi in order to start the external program. After the timer runs out I would like to use KillProcessByName in order to exit the external program. So now can any one help me with the implementation and syntax for the KillProcessByName function? Thank You.
