API for beginners made easy.
Yet another submission for beginners. The API is sometimes avoided when first starting VB programming because it seems too difficult. In fact it's quite easy, just experiment. I've tried to split the code up to into various modules to make it clearer to undertand. Vb controls sometimes lack some properties we as programmers need. The API can be used to return those properties to us. In addition API gives us access to built in dialogs and other functions not otherwise available through VB. This demo covers only a few of the more common API functions, there are hundreds and hundreds of others!
Modify VB Controls: Listview Flat Column headers, Treeview no tooltips, Progress bar change back/forecolor, Textbox - lower/uppercase and numbers only, Command button - thick edge, flat, hover.
Dialogs: Open, Save, Browse for Folder, Printer, PageSetup, Color, Font, Add to Favorites, Organize Favorites, Import/Export Favorites, About.
Functions: GUID Generator, Unique Temp filename, IE Version, Keycode giver, Hard Disk info, Common Paths, Long filename, Short filename, FileExists, Binary open/save
String Parsing: Pathonly, Fileonly, ExtensionOnly, ChangeExtension, Unique filename, File size, Trim null characters.
I recommend you visit www.allapi.net for excellent downloads regarding the API - but be quick, I understand the site is closing soon.

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come
out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner
If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
