Hello Arno, > What's annoying is that a TTimer creates a window and also requires > ExtCtrls.pas to be included.
On my site you find a serial comport component (TCiaComPort). It has a custom Timer on board that does not create a window, but can use an existing window. It does not have to include ExtCtrls.pas or any other that enlarge console programs. It was on question of one of my users to include timeouts and still have a small exe. If you can use it you can copy the code from the unit. --- Rgds, Wilfried [TeamICS] http://www.overbyte.be/eng/overbyte/teamics.html http://www.mestdagh.biz -- To unsubscribe or change your settings for TWSocket mailing list please goto http://www.elists.org/mailman/listinfo/twsocket Visit our website at http://www.overbyte.be
