How do you access or write a settings dialog box for a screensaver written in VB5. Is there an api function for this and if not how do I write the code to make the dialog box appear when the 'Settings' button is pressed in the Desktop 'Properties' dialog box.

Put this in the main form of your screen saver:

Private Sub Form_Load()

  Dim Provider As String
 
  Select Case UCase(Left(Command, 2))
 
        Case "/A"
                 Provider = "SCRSAVE" & Chr(0)
                 Call PwdChangePassword(Provider, Main_Form.hWnd, 0)
                 End
       
        Case "/P"
                 Unload Me
                 Exit Sub
                 
        Case "/C"
                         frmSetup.Show 1
                         Exit Sub
                 
        Case "/S"
 
  End Select
 
  InCleanExit = False
 
End Sub

the /C passed means the user hit the setup button so you need to display your setup form.
