    I feel that I am unnecessarily creating many topics to ask small questions so I have decided to make this topic so that I can personally ask questions without creating a new topic each time. I feel that this is an effective method.

    The first few questions i have to ask is...

    1. Is their any way to get a program to read the resolution. SORTED

    2. Is it possible to use writing in the forelayer (eg instead of having a curcular pen having the ability to click then type)

    3. Would it be possible to get a file to be read (using the FileRead function) this statement:
    Element Nature Plant 0 255 0 0 1 1 1 0 Clear 0 File img\Plant.bmp
    So that it creates a colour selectable using a image button with the picture Plant.bmp, using the pen colour as (0, 255, 0) and a couple of other things that once i know how to do them then I will undertand how to do.

    4. Is there anyway to swap points that are created on the forelayer (eg a blue circle is created which then slowly falls down the forelayer)

    5. To save part of the program (in my case the image inside a frame) as a bmp

    6. i seem to get a fault that says
    When I click near the end of the programs edges. SORTED

    That is about it... Oh!!! And the code I am using is here

    Thanks for any questions that can be answered.

    I disagree. It is more useful to another user a topic with a specific subject.

    Here is a workaround for the first question. Except the attached .sbp file is needed the dzHW.DLL (PPC) and dzHWdekstop.DLL (PC) from here Page 2 post #15 (latest version)

    I could use that with my program so thanks... but why is there 4 resolution sizes on it... resolutions only have 2... eg 400*500.

    It seems that the last two are the ones for desktop... is it the same with PPC?

    EDIT: I used
    Dim hWnd 
       hWnd    = dzhw.GetActiveWindowHandle
    rect() = dzhw.GetWindowRect(hWnd)
       Resolution.Text (   
    "Resolution: " & rect.Right &    " x " & rect.Bottom,)
    It doesn't seem to work but I can't find anything wrong with it.

    EDIT2: I have realised that it works with a msgBox but I need it to appear in a label... is there any way to do this?

    EDIT3: SORTED IT MYSELF!!!!! Can anyone help with any of the other questions

    EDIT4: sorted another.

    That doesn't work because you can't save the forelayer.

    Actually Left, Top, Right and Bottom are points relative to screen.

    Width = rect.Right-rect.Left
    Height = rect.Bottom-rect.Top

    Resolution.Text = "Resolution: " & rect.Right-rect.Left & " x " & rect.Bottom-rect.Top
