Err, not a lot, no.

You don't do that. WATSUP uses WinGuiAuto, which is a fairly thin
wrapper around the Win32 API. Oh, and it's rubbish.

Rather than sending keysrokes, you instead just set the controls' text
to whatever you want it to be.

Should be a simple extension to what's already there.

I'm afraid I can't really help you here. I'm a Mac user these days!
You might have some luck with the WATSUP user mailing list -
<https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/watsup-users>.

Good luck!
