Hi I have the handle of a window as an intPtr, how do I get the handle as a Long from this?
I've tried searching many places, I'm new to VB .Net so I hope it's something so simple people never need to ask.
I appreciate any help.

You don't!

Use an Integer (NOT a Long)....

For example:

    ' From within some Form
    Dim hWnd As IntPtr = Me.Handle
    Dim intWnd As Integer = hWnd.ToInt32

A handle is represented by a Long in VB6, but in .Net you use an Integer.

Thankyou very much, the things I hate the most are the easy problems that get you stuck for too much time. And I appreciate the Integer tip, all the examples on the net seem to be written in VB6 which means I'm converting it to .Net as I'm learning it.
And there's a shortage of English Books in China for Exchange students.
Here's your points, I appreciate the help ^_^
