    Hiding dialup window called from a VB form


    Hi Team,

    I am Jerald, and I am using VB and winsock for transferring files on the
    internet. I am successful throughout the process. The only problem I am facing
    is that I am using a dial up connection for initializing the Internet connection
    when the particular computer is not online.

    I am using the InternetDial API in VB for calling up the dial up connection
    box. Now, the problem is I have to somehow prevent this dialog box from appearing
    on the user screen. The net should be connected using the dialog box but
    it should not be visible to the user. I am using a VB form which cosists
    of a Upload button. I hide the form when it gets activated and there is a
    system tray icon that shows the current transfer progress. The dialup connection
    dialog box is called from within the form. The form gets hidden but the dial
    up box keeps poping up.

    Is there a way to sort this problem out, by using a API or the like. Some
    API that will minimize (or hide) my parent form which in case would minimize
    (or hide) all the forms (called from current application or outside current
    application) called by this parent form.

    Kindly help..

    Regards..

    Jerald

    Use the RAS API:
