ddeSend in ModernSkins

Is it posible to use the ddeSend() in maki to control other aplications? I got the following from the sdk:

wa_msgids.h

SendMessage(hwnd_winamp, WM_COMMAND,command_name,0);

And then it gives me lot of usefull options like star ratings.

Is it posible to use the ddeSend() in maki?

MAKI
ddeSend("mIRC", "/msg #channel I'm using Winamp3", 300);
SDK
SendMessage(hwnd_winamp, WM_COMMAND,command_name,0);

If it isnt posible I think and many will agree that this will open many doors to make modern skins even more user friendly...

Dosn't look like it a search on 'ddeSend' brings back a few threads, non of which got it working.

Personal opinion, way to much of a security risk to open that up.....

It doesn't need to be a security risk if it is only open to winamp. It's not like winamp will delete all my emails? I dont want to use this with a external program but only with winamp. The other threads about this was to get ddeSend to control external programs.

If this isn't posible at the moment I think it must be added asap. Don't think it will be hard to do and wont corrupt any other part of gen_ff.dll
Since Benski is working on gen_ff.dll again maybe he can add this???

The problem is the app you're sending to has to support dde too, which is in a lot of cases not the case.

Possible sollution

If it is possible to open a external program via the system.navigateUrl(); command will it be possible to have the ddesend signals send by a external program. The command that you want to send can then be added after the full filename:

Example:
%SystemRoot%\system32\mspaint.exe "c:\cover.jpg"
In a shortcut, will open cover.jpg in paintbrush.

No we just need such a program and a way to add this extra param via the navigateUrl() command...
Check this thread

Will certainly be easier with a build in maki command that work but until then...
