Not to be offensive...but the API is usually beyond the dummy
level.  I couldn't see how it could fit into the dummy format
and still be useful.

A good book...with C examples...but also with great descriptions
of the functions themsevles...an invaluable reference...is:

  "The Win32 API Bible, Book One" by The Waite Group Press.

The book gives a quite a few visual examples too.

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.
