The API Text Viewer in VB5.0 gives the list of Win32 API's and the parameters for that which we need to cut and paste in the Declare Section of our project.  Where can i find the explanation of each API, its parameter, list of values and explanation (like 1 - minised state, 2- maximised state) and if possible an example ?

There is an excellent book made by Dan Appleman, that explains the API's. it's called "Visual Basic 5 Programmer's Guide to the Win 32 API".  If you have other programming languages installed on your PC (like Visual C+ or Delphi) you can find explanation of the API-calls there. Also a query in a internet-searchengine might give you some good results, when you're looking for a specific API-call.
