Hi experts,

I'm closing down on a long problem I've been having, I posted a few Q's in the Delphi area and now I'm posting here a second one cause its urgent, the matter is separated, the guys in the Delphi area  must be sick of me and also Dan pointed out something about posting two Qs in one so I guess it's ok to post many Qs if the subject is a bit different ;)

Anyway, my problem is as follows:
I have a small application to stablish a Dialup connection to a local ISP. It works fine, my problem is that in Win2000 & WinXP I can't disconect the dialing when the user clicks on my "cancel" button.

I'm using RasApi. I realized that my RasEnumConnections isn't returning connections so I can't call RasHangUp on it, I'm guessing...

All I wan't is to be able to cancel the connection I'm stablishing, at this point I'm really not concerned how.

What eventually happens is, since my code for disconnecting doesn't work, the connection ends up getting stablished succesfully eventhough the user had click the "cancel" button.

This is a link to another Q I posted in the Delphi area:

Please help!

Thanks,

Esopo.

Do you mean that, with the HRASCONN connection handle returned by RasDial, I can call RasHangUp even without getting valid connections from  RasEnumConnections?

I'm sure checking this up, thank you for your comment, if you have any other idea please let me know.

Best regards,

Esopo.

yes that is what I mean, if you can RasGetConnectStatus with your handle, then regardless of what enumconnections returns, you can RasHangUp the HRASCONN

It seems to work like a charm. Of Course! the RasDial returns a Handle!! how could I have been so blind!

I stored the handle the RasDial returned and called RasHangUp with it. Seems to work properly. Thank you. This Q is over. (Finally, now I just have to close the other Qs related to this subject ;)
