Tray, Jacques and others
If you are interested in Win32 API and haven't yet bought Dan Appleman's exelent book, have no Visual Basic or if you are just lacking some special information about it. It is worth checking out Win32 API function reference at
most of which you can use with MapBasic.

Subject: RE: MI : window size dependency

Hello Jacques and all,
If you go to my website, then to WinAPI, you will find the source code you copy into you MB app that stops the user from closing, moving, min, and max. The "resize" is removed from the menu command [top left of window] but the window still has "drag" [at least on WinNT] capability.
Languages like VB MB Delphi C etc, are just an easy way [sometimes not the best way] to control Windoze....but the WinAPI "IS" Windoze.
I have a prologue that lists a few books that popped up on the results at [notice no link, check you favorite book outlet] of about 130+ when I entered "WinAPI' in the search......I'm not promoting anything but look into the author's integration with VisualBasic [that's the first listing and pub'd 1999] as very little is different from MB [API uses "long" as an integer where MI is just "Integer"] which will make understanding how to setup the call a bit easier.  The books should have the calls listed [or maybe CD] which will help.  All the stuff I have came with developer software [Delphi/VB] and is extremely difficult to understand as most of it references the C++ structures.
Here's what is currently on available [more as get the time]
   Get a list of the files in a folder
