How do you minimize an app like normal windows by pressing a standard button?

Also how can I convert seconds into hh:mm:ss ?

I am using CBuilder 1 (I know, golden oldie)

Kind Regs,
Rob Green.

1.  To minimize a window use the ShowWindow() procedure with the SW_MINIMIZE. "command".

2.  To convert seconds to hours divide by 3600 (that's 60*60).  Take the integer part of that (or do the math in integer instead of floating point).  Then to do the minutes take the remainder of the division and divide by 60.  The integer part is the minutes the remainder is the seconds.  For example.given the seconds in TotalSeconds.

int Hours = TotalSeconds / 3600;

TotalsSecond = TotalSeconds % 3600;

int Minutes = TotalSeconds / 60;
Int Seconds = TotalSeconds % 60;
