Hello,

I have an application coded by some company that is opened as full screen and it doesn't have an option to not open it as full screen.

How is it possible to create an application that will act as a container for that application so I can have a normal title bar to minimize it, etc?

Thanks.

Hmmm...

You might try a little Delphi Application using ShellExecute like this:

if ShellExecute(handle, nil, Pchar('Application.exe'), PChar(abfFileOperation1.DestFolder), PChar('C:\Application Directory'), SW_SHOWNORMAL) < 32 then
    ShowMessage('Could Not Open Application');

The params for SW_SHOW may not do what you want..... so I doubt this will work but might be worth a try.

Look in help for ShellExecute  for other params to try.

I became intrigued by this and found that you 'can' open an application as a child window in an MDI application. Does not work as well as a true child of your app, but might give you some more ideas.
