Besides I didn't say I'd finish it in a couple of days, but that it'd give Bo something to work with, eg: if Bo can see what pattern I'm following then maybe he or someone else can offer to finish it off themselves... COM is an interesting suggestion, but I wouldn't spare more than a couple of minutes thinking about it until someone confirmed that things like Delphi really play well with it. I know from experience that even though Uniface supports COM there are many COM types that it doesn't support and I wouldn't be at all surprised to learn that other languages have similar limits on the COM support. Secondly many developers 'need' to learn how to call Win32 'C' functions but never bother to learn how to call COM functions. At least any effort put into a 'C' API (for want of a better term) will benefit the largest possible base of users (windows/hp/solaris etc). Regards, Arthur
