  0,0,380,340,0,0,hInstance,nil);

 EH:=CreateWindow('EDIT','Example', ES_AUTOHSCROLL or WS_Border or WS_Child or WS_Visible,50,50,200,20,Hwin,EditBox2,Hinstance,Nil);

//Create Window, EditBox2 is what to look for...


 BH:=CreateWindow('BUTTON','OK',BS_PUSHBUTTON Or WS_VISIBLE OR WS_CHILD, 100,100,50,50, Hwin, Button, 0,Nil);



 while Active do
  begin
  if PeekMessage(Msg,hWin,0,0,PM_NOREMOVE) then
   begin
     Active:=Longint(GetMessage(Msg,hWin,0,0))<>0;
     TranslateMessage(Msg);
     DispatchMessage(Msg);
  end else WaitMessage;
end;

end.

When you press shift X it should close down the application but it does not, it should :P


 Thanks in Advance...

Nope still did not help, closing down the form when it recvs a char is not what it's intended to do, when you press X in the edit box that displays, then it's supposed to close down...

Hi,

Did you have a look at previous posts?

I posted a complete program using Raw Apis that works nicely.

Have a look in my reply history to find it.

Cheers,

Andrew
