Hi!

I want to set the priority level of my program, but how.
I would think it would be something like Application.Priority:=Normal.
Thanks!

Chr,

Priorties can be adjusted only per thread. If your application contains only one thread (as most applications do), the following code will do the trick :

SetThreadPriority(GetCurrentThread, THREAD_PRIORITY_NORMAL);

You can replace THREAD_PRIORITY_NORMAL with any of the values documented in the SetThreadPriority function. Some of these values are : THREAD_PRIORITY_ABOVE_NORMAL, THREAD_PRIORITY_HIGHEST      etc.
