When I try to connect to a remote access server (RAS) a dialog window appears after the dialing, asking me to enter username, password and domain, althougth I stated those parameters in code. How do I get rid of this window?

It's the Async part that shows or not show the dialog..   Something like this..

If boolAsync Then
      'Asyncronous and ignoring RASDIALEXTENSIONS.
      'So that HWND is valid
      Load frmAsyncDial      
      lngRetCode = RasDial(ByVal APINULL, vbNullString, lprasdialparams, &HFFFFFFFF, frmAsyncDial.hWND, hRasConn)
Else
      'Syncronous and ignoring RASDIALEXTENSIONS.      
      Screen.MousePointer = vbHourglass      
      lngRetCode = RasDial(ByVal APINULL, vbNullString, lprasdialparams, APINULL, ByVal APINULL, hRasConn)
      Screen.MousePointer = vbDefault
End If

I already do it 'Syncronous', not 'Asyncronous '.
Still this window appears.
What's causing it's display?

I use:

Load frmAsyncDial
lngRetCode = RasDial(ByVal APINULL, vbNullString, lprasdialparams, &HFFFFFFFF, frmAsyncDial.hWND, hRasConn)

To show it and:

'Syncronous and ignoring RASDIALEXTENSIONS.
Screen.MousePointer = vbHourglass
lngRetCode = RasDial(ByVal APINULL, vbNullString, lprasdialparams, APINULL, ByVal APINULL, hRasConn)
Screen.MousePointer = vbDefault

To not show it.

By the way If you go to http://www.karland.com/OurProducts/RAS32/ you will see and can get the DLL I wrote in VB using this code.  It gives you the option to display or not display the dialog.

Chizl,

Thanx for answering and sorry for the long delay in my response, I was unavailable...

But...

As I mentioned in my previous comment, I ALREADY do it Syncronously. There is nothing new here, I do it exactly the same as the code you wrote for not showing that window. But in my case the window DOES appear.

Any suggestions?

With the API I have :
&HFFFFFFFF, frmAsyncDial.hWND to show the dialog.. My own dialog..

The:
APINULL, ByVal APINULL
should make it not show up..

I'm not sure what the problem could be if it still shows up even with:
APINULL, ByVal APINULL as parm 4 and 5.

Humm.. I will look into it more.

Maybe you can pass in a hWnd of your own dialog, but make that dialog invisible (hide).  Trashy way to do it, but if nothing else works.
