how to show a child window

how to show a child window

I want to show (make it appear) a child window when I know all about it and its parent window (like: handle etc) using the PostMessage api (or mayber another one which I don't know about - it has been less than a week since I jumped into api programming).

Can anyone help me explicitely telling me the way of doing it or a relevant tutorial...

RE: how to show a child window

bborissov thankyou for ur reply...but that didnt work...

the child window that i want to show can be shown with the following api call:

PostMessage parentWindowHandle, WM_COMMAND, 32947, 0

but I don't understand the use of "32947" in that call.
I used an api-spy to see if that number was somehow related to that child window - but that number doesn't appear anywhere.

If that number is changed then the desired child window won't appear by that api call.

maybe u can see why that number is used?
