How can I tell when sendkeys has been successfully executed?

How do I know when the result of a sendkeys or sendinput() has been successfully executed? I would like to execute a series of instruction based on successful execution of previously sent instruction(s) without having to "guess" at sleep time.
The SendInput function is guaranteed to completely play all the input you pass. However, that has no guarantee that you are playing the input back to the correct locations or windows on the machine. It's up to you to ensure the application(s) state(s) are set exactly as you expect them before calling SendInput.
