DLLCall Trouble

1 post in this topic

Hey Guys,

I was hoping someone might be able point me in the right direction on how to use DLLCall properly.

Basically at work we are rolling out a new SOE and they want a script that will set 3 particualr values in the 'Performance Options' section from the System Properities > Advanced tab.

These settings are all under the Custom section:

- Smooth Edges of screen fonts

- Use drop shadows for icons labels on the desktop

- Use visual styles on Windows and buttons

The rest of them won't be selected.

I figured i would be able to use a DLLCall of somekind to the User32.dll but this is the first time ive used DllCall and it's over my head.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default....ametersinfo.asp

The page above seems to have reference to certain values that seem to be what im after (SPI_GETDROPSHADOW/SPI_SETDROPSHADOW, SPI_GETFONTSMOOTHING/SPI_SETFONTSMOOTHING) but the trouble im having is i have no idea how to retrieve or return these values so i can check wether they are turned on and if not how to enable them.

If anyone could point me in the right direction or knows of a better way to set these settings i would much appreciate it.

Thanks Heaps!!
