      THIS PROGRAM IS A VB ADDIN THAT SIMPLIFIES AND QUICKENS THE PROCESS OF INSERTING API DECLARATIONS AS WELL AS THEIR ASSOCIATED CONSTANTS AND TYPES IN YOUR PROJECT. HERE IS HOW IT WORKS: 1) FOR API DECLARATION INSERTION: type out the api call i.e "setwindowpos" (without the quotes) select or highlight the call with your mouse cursor, and with the left button still pressed down hit the "a" key on the keyboard. 2) FOR CONSTANTS INSERTION (a) if you know the constants you want type out the first 3 letters ( or more) of the constant(s) you wish to insert. For example..say you've just inserted the api call "DrawText" which requires at least on of the constants prefixed with "DT_ i.e "DT_LEFT or "DT_SINGLELINE" Type out "dt_" (without the quotes) select it with your mouse and with the left button still down hit the "c" key select the constants you desire from the alphabetical list (b) If your unsure of the constants you want with the left mouse button pressed anywhere in the code window hit the "c" key select the constants you desire from the alphabetical list 3) FOR TYPE INSERTION (a) if you know the type you desire type out the entire types name i.e. "pointapi" (without the quotes) select it with your mouse, with the left button still down hit the "t" key, confirm your selection (b) if your usure of the constants you desire with the left mouse button depressed anywhere in the code window, hit the "t" key. The entire list of constants is displayed in alphabetical order. Make your selection(s)

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
