Hi,

I need to download documentation containing windows API functions. Where can I do this(where exactly on the MSN website), as I need to trap the "connected to internet" message.

I preferably need both questions answered. I will need the documentation for future use.

Regards,
Dion.

hi,
if you installed delphi you most likely have a file called win32.hlp installed ,search your drives for it.

msdn is certainly the best place(usually more up to date), i recently bought vc6,it came with msdn on cds which i installed ,makes for fast searching ;-)


to see if your connected to the internet you can try this function from wininet :

Uses Wininet;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
   dwConnectionTypes: dWord;
begin
dwConnectionTypes := 0;
if InternetGetConnectedState(@dwConnectionTypes, 0) then
  showmessage('connected')
 else
  showmessage('not connected');
end;


if that fails to work you can use the component here:
