well to show the applet try:

shellExecute(0,nil,'c:\windows\control.exe','c:\windows\system\netcpl.cpl',nil,SW_SHOW);

A better way to show the network control panel is like this:

shellExecute(0,nil,'rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL netcpl.cpl','',nil,SW_SHOW);

(No clues yet about clicking the buttons...)

Cheers,

Raymond.

Here's a code snipet that would start the CPL applet and click the "Add" button.  (note that there is a minor bug in rwilson'd code: you have to pass rundll32 and the arguments seperately)



in your event handler...

var hIns : THandle;

begin;
hIns := ShellExecute(0,nil,'rundll32.exe', 'shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL netcpl.cpl',nil,SW_SHOW);
WaitForSingleObject(hIns, 10 *1000);

repeat
  h := FindWindow('#32770', 'Network');
  if h = 0 then sleep(10);
until h <> 0;

DlgID := 209; //for Add button
PostMessage(h, wm_Command, DlgID, MakeLong(h, BN_Clicked));


FYI, the following are the DLgIDs for some other buttons,

Ok : 1
Cancel : 2
Help : 9

Properties: 208
Add : 209
Remove : 210

Apply : 12321

ahalya,

Yes, there is a bug in my example :-(, but it isn't quite the one you point out. The following does in fact work, and what I would have written if it hadn't been rather late :o)  

ShellExecute(Handle, 'open', 'rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL netcpl.cpl', '', Nil, SW_Normal);

Cheers,

Raymond.
