I cannot use the function Extfloodfill because vb says: entry not found. Maybe the declaration isn't ok, but I read it in a Windows book. I use this declaration:
'declare function extfloodfill lib "gdi32" (...) as integer'
Can anyone send me a working vbp of Extfloodfill?

For VB4-32bit, VB5 or VB6 this will work:

Declare Function ExtFloodFill Lib "gdi32" Alias "ExtFloodFill" (ByVal hdc As Long, ByVal x As Long, ByVal y As Long, ByVal crColor As Long, ByVal wFillType As Long) As Long

If you are using VB4-16bit or VB3, you can get the correct declare from a winapi.txt file located at \VB\Winapi

Dear Mike,
Thanks for your answer. The function works now, but not as I want.
I wanted to use the function ExtFloodfill to fill  an area in a  picturebox.
Problem: it works only when the border is black. What I want is that
an area is filled, also when the border has another colour, or when
the border has two colours. The description says that it must work,
but it doesn't.
What is my mistake?
