I am trying to use SystemParametersInfo() with SPI_SETMENUSHOWDELAY as the first parameter but it will not compile. I am using Visual C++ 6 with SP3 and I have Platform SDK installed. My OS is NT4 with SP5.
According to the documentation SPI_SETMENUSHOWDELAY should be defined in Winuser.h which it isn't on my computer. Does anyone know why and what value it is defined to.

thanks

I´m not sure of this, but I´ve been searching and SPI_SETMENUSHOWDELAY it´s not defined in VC++ environment.
I´ve been searching for this constant in Internet, and I think that you can try with:
#define SPI_SETMENUSHOWDELAY 107

I´ve found this value in:

I hope that this is usefull for you...
