Is it just me or is the GetWindowLong API mess'd up?
Private Declare Function GetWindowLong Lib "user32" Alias "GetWindowLongA" _
(ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal wIndx As Long) As Long
is the api I'm using... and I use:
hInstance=GetWindowLong(hWnd,GWL_HINSTANCE) where hWnd=any valid hWnd and GWL_HINSTANCE=(-6)
whenever I check the hInstance value, it is the SAME one of the local application that I'm running. (ie. in runtime VB, in compile my application) Does the api need to be in a module? Am I calling it wrong? Is it a windows bug?(big surprise) Any help is appreciated... thanks in advance.
