What kind of windows do you try to destroy ?
Is it your own application windows, or windows created by another application ?

Hmmm, I have two queses: D1 and w95 problem or you paste bad parameters to the procedure...

Anyway, I quess you should try it with other windows or smth, and try to monitor the parameters you paste.

Wana` send it to me so I can check it with D3?

Good luck!

I sent the routines. The parameters should be ok. I checked the handles with other programs too.

 The form has a ComboBox which gives the running windows and their handles. When the user selects a window title and presses the OK button the DestroyWindow executes... What's wrong?

---------------------------------------


unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  SysUtils, WinTypes, WinProcs, Messages, Classes, Graphics, Controls,
  Forms, Dialogs, StdCtrls, Buttons;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    OKButton: TBitBtn;
    ComboBox1: TComboBox;
    procedure ComboBox1DropDown(Sender: TObject);
    procedure OKButtonClick(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

procedure TForm1.ComboBox1DropDown(Sender: TObject);
 var i:word;
     ls:byte;
     sa:array[1..255] of char;
     s:string;
     hndl:hwnd;
begin
 combobox1.items.clear;
 hndl:=GetNextWindow(application.handle,GW_HWNDNEXT);
  for i:=1 to GetNumTasks-1 do
   begin
    ls:=GetWindowText(hndl,@sa, 255);
    s:=strpas(@sa);
    if s<>'' then combobox1.items.add(inttostr(hndl)+' '+s);
    hndl:=GetNextWindow(hndl,GW_HWNDNEXT);
   end;
end;

procedure TForm1.OKButtonClick(Sender: TObject);
 var
   h:Hwnd;
   sa,cl:array[1..255] of char;
   dd:boolean;

begin
 h:=strtoint(copy(combobox1.text,1,pos(' ',combobox1.text)-1));
 if h<>0 then
            dd:=DestroyWindow(h);
end;

end.

Whoat is your purpose of using DestroyWindow instead of a Delphi method ? Free would do this work for you.

Try this:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
 var
   h:Hwnd;
begin
  h:=strtoint(copy(combobox1.text,1,pos(' ',combobox1.text)-1));
  if h<>0 then
     SendMessage(h, WM_DESTROY, 0, 0);
end;
