hiding and showing up windows programs

Hello
Is that possible to hide and show ordinary windows application,
like cd-player using Labview?
How I can make external program vissible, and hide it?

There is a library available online (search for it on the NI site) called LVWUTIL.ZIP. Inside this file is a library called winutil.llb that has the VIs Hide Window and Show Window. You feed the VIs the name of the window that you are working with. There are lots of other useful VIs in these libraries as well.

Hi Rob (once more)
The library you depicted is design for 16 bit application. Does
it matter I will run it in Win NT 4.0?

Hi once more
While opening the vis from library I have received the error that
version (3.1) is too old to convert to the current Labview
version 6.1.
What shell I do now, does it mean I can not use it any more. How
can I over go the problem is there any upgrade of this library?
Thanks for help.

regards
PP

Sorry about that. I was reading the library name off of the documentation and forgot that there was 2 versions of it. And I've been using that library in NT 4.0 for a while, so it should work fine.

I played with the library a bit. I even built a VI that makes the name on the title bar scroll. Not that I have much use for that VI, but I put the time down to "learning".

But then, I've also built buttons that run away from the cursor and similar things.

Hi, tried to find the vi's you mention, but couldn't find on the
names you gave.. Can you tell me how to get these vi's.

Regards,

Steve Drake
