Sorry,

  //example of showing TFileTime variable
  ShowMessage(DateTimeToStr(FileTimeToDateTime(lpCreationTime)));

Shane, this will list all running process and the button tells the creation time, is that right?
Yes, bu there are other variables as well:

lpExitTime, lpKernelTime, lpUserTime

Shane

Author

Commented:
Yes, i was looking into that. I did a simple changing with the lpCreationTime in the ShowMessage in your code, but the resulting numbers I don't get.
What are lpExitTime, lpKernelTime, lpUserTime, and how can I use them?

Author

Commented:
I was actually reading that article, but although it explains how to use the values, it doesn't explain what Kernel mode and User mode are. Do you know?

I'll keep researching.
No I don't sorry!

However, if you search google groups foe (Delphi +  lpCreationTime) or any of the other values, you will see some of the information that is gathered using these values - Example , Computing CPU useage time, etc.

Shane
Did you look at the properties of TProcessEntry32;

var
 ProcessEntry : TProcessEntry32;

Shane
I just found this


http://www.volweb.cz/pvones/delphi/
http://www.volweb.cz/pvones/delphi/ToolHlpViewer.htm

It says the code can be downloaded from the JEDI page

http://delphi-jedi.org/Jedi:JCLDOWNLOADS

Im gonna download it and look!

Shane
Yup, all those applications (ToolHelp Viewer), and their source code is available in the download (JCL)

Hey guys!

I'm back. I know I deserve a name-calling session for leaving this Q out in the open for so long, but I had some issues that parted me from the net for a while.

Anyway, I'm back, got my hands on this project again and plan to see it through very soon. I'll be burning my brain with the code, hopefully we can come up with a function that will serve the delphi community for many years to come... (I feel I owe, you know?)

I'll be back with my findings very soon.

Esopo.
