I want to use "EnableMenuItem" to disable(grey) the CLOSE button on the top right corner of pkzip window. I tried "EnableMenuItem(lhMenu,6,MF_GRAYED And MF_BYPOSITION)", and nothing was disabled. In the command above, lhMenu is the menu handle,6 is position of CLOSE. Thanks for your help.

dear luming,
the usage of your api correct but instead of  "and" in between MF_GRAYED and  MF_BYPOSITION  you should use "or".

You should use like this

EnableMenuItem(lhMenu,6,MF_GRAYED or  MF_BYPOSITION)"

here i have an example using word applicaton for that you to first set the references in vb for microsoft word 8.0 object library and then use this code it might be helpfull to you
place a command button on form and paste the code under it
 Dim x As Object
Dim ret As Long
Dim ret1 As Long
Set x = CreateObject("word.application")
x.Application.documents.Add
x.Visible = True
ret1 = FindWindow("OpusApp", 0)
ret = EnableMenuItem(GetSystemMenu(ret1, False), 6, MF_GRAYED Or MF_BYPOSITION)

i don't know your exact usage if you can give me actual requirement i can give you code for that.
