     *This is a complete application, I hope you find it helpful. It's not heavily commented but the code is easy to read and understand and will hopefully teach you alot: -Very useful Date & Time functions -Mimicing a Spinner Control using a Text Box & a Vertical Scroll Bar -Adding XP Style Support to VB Apps using a manifest file compiled within the executable as a resource -API calls to perform the following: 1. Add a System Tray Icon and make it blink 2. Run the eMail client, or open the web browser to a certain website 3. Identify the operating system 4. Shutdown, Restart, and Log Off: All Versions of Windows 5. Suspend (Stand by), Hibernate: Win98 or later, win2000 or later 6. Lock Computer: win2000 or later

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. 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:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. 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
