Hello experts,

How do I use the AnimateWindow function from CWnd? MSDN says, include windows.h and the import lib is user32.lib. What do I need to put in the header of the file to be able to use this function?

Thanks, =)

See the article "Using the SDK Headers":

AnimateWindow requirements are:

Windows NT/2000 or later: Requires Windows 2000 or later.
Windows 95/98/Me: Requires Windows 98 or later

According to the table from this article, you need to add the following definition:

#define _WIN32_WINNT 0x0410

I tried that and it didn't work, but thanks anyway Alex, and I'm giving you the points =). I found some code on CodeGuru that made it work.
