Does anyone have either Delphi code, Pascal code or just a working utility in any code that will produce a "Boss Button". There is a TSR running and no matter what application you are running you can press a hot key when the boss arrives and get a screen that has been captured as a .BMP file and looks like legitimate work.

Hehe... I wrote an app written for that very purpose.  I can mail it to you (with source) if you want.

Thanks JB, if I increase the points to 200 can you also tell me where I can get the command set to directly drive an IDE HDD? I mean the hex codes to do things like seek a particular track, read, write, etc. I want to be able to sequentially write sector by sector, track by track with only a track to adjacent track seek. The aim is to get data onto the drive as fast as possible via a dedicated microprocessor. (nothing on the drive to start with). Just a URL to a site will do.

Howdy

Sorry, I don't know much about raw I/O to a HDD.

But if you want me to send the other app to you, I'll need your e-mail address...

OK JB, I can do without the codes.

>But if you want me to send the other app to you, I'll need your e-mail address...    olson@senet.com.au  
How do I get this question to 'lock' so you get your points? That should be worth the extras you could have got from the drive codes!
