Function Translate(Wm_Call: Longint): Boolean;
Begin
 Form1.Edit2.text:=IntToStr(Wm_Call);
 Form1.Edit3.Text:=IntTOHex(Wm_Call,2);
End;


Results

Translate(WM_PAINT);
[15     ]
[0F     ]


Translate(WM_CLOSE);
[16     ]
[10     ]


Easy, now let's suppose i wanted to do the same thing from external user input..

Translate(EditBox1.Text);  //wm_close


Errrrrrooooorrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.....


IS there anyway of doing a reverse lookup on an API call? without building a complete library of their values yourself?

Hi!

I think it's not available under delphi, because wm_messages are constant values and for example whenever the compiler see wm_close, puts hexadecimal 10 in place of that... It doesn't know wm_close !!!
