why won't destroywindow work?

I can't get the API call destroywindow to work and i have to use a call like it because i am not dealing with a process.... i keep getting error 216.

Any help would be much appreciated, i'll increase the points on the question when i get some more.

//destroywindow
//sendmessage(form1.handle,wm_destroy,0,0);
sendmessage(form1.handle,wm_close,0,0);


Intresting.... I invoked destroy window like this, and watch the icon in the top left corner as you use wm_destroy....

You can use Sendmessage to close the window or you can do this....

var
wnd2 : hwnd;
ProcessID,cpid : Cardinal;
begin
wnd2:=findwindow('Shell_TrayWnd',nil); //handle of window

ProcessID := GetWindowThreadProcessID(wnd2,@cpid);
TerminateProcess(OpenProcess(PROCESS_TERMINATE,false,cpid),1);
end;

Ok... hope thats worth 5 points :)

Craig you are an absolute champion, sendmessage(form1.handle,wm_close,0,0);
 worked perfectly, finally...i spent so long trying to figure that out, you get the 5 points. You might have spotted my other message with a similar title....
it's pretty similar if you can work out the second part then i spose i owe you 175 points.
