Wallpaper

How do I get my Delphi program to change the Windows 95 wallpaper and then refresh it so the user can see the change?

I use Delphi 1 & 2

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

for delphi 2, try:

SystemParametersInfo(SPI_SETDESKWALLPAPER, 0, 'C:\windows\NewPaper.bmp', SPIF_UPDATEINIFILE);

or

SystemParametersInfo(SPI_SETDESKWALLPAPER, 0, 'C:\windows\NewPaper.bmp', SPIF_SENDWININICHANGE);

Not sure which one is the paramater for the last option.  I would test, but I just re-installed windows, and delphi isn't back up yet.
