API to pop up a preformatted About Dialog

(OP)
Hello all,

It seems like I remember seeing an API example quite a while ago that pops up an About Dialog box. Does this ring a bell with anyone? Thanks in advance for any ideas and/or suggestions!

RE: API to pop up a preformatted About Dialog

Perhaps you are talking about ShellAbout function. You can call it easily like this.
___

Private Declare Function ShellAbout Lib "shell32" Alias "ShellAboutA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal szApp As String, ByVal szOtherStuff As String, ByVal hIcon As Long) As Long
Private Sub Form_Load()
    ShellAbout hwnd, App.Title, App.ProductName, Icon
    Unload Me
End Sub

___

I don't think you can make any good use of this function. This is a pure "Microsoft" About box used by many Windows applications and you cannot customize it.

That's the one. Thanks!
