Perhaps it could if "we" knew how. Well "I" know how ;-) Only a little bit really. I've got some converted C code that uses the new MacOS 8.5 Window Manager calls that do all sorts of neat things. I'm guessing that a lot of developers don't want to support this stuff. You don't see it very much (FB^3 could use it, hint, hint) One is TOOLBOX FN IsWindowPathSelectClick (LONG,@LONG) = Boolean That will return a _true if you cmd-click in the titlebar in the window path pop-up menu. Then you call TOOLBOX FN WindowPathSelect (LONG,LONG,@LONG) = LONG That tells the system to display the pop-up menu. It need to be supplied with event record information and a file spec (FSSpec) There is also a transition window effect like the Finder uses to zoom windows when open or closing them. You can have this in your programs with TOOLBOX FN TransitionWindow (LONG,UInt32,UInt32,LONG) = LONG I don't want to go on too long here so I'll just say that you should take a look at http://developer.apple.com/techpubs/macos8/pdf/ProgWMacOS85WindowMgr.pdf it explains how to use those calls. Maybe IF I have time I'll make a short demo. TransitionWindow is one of the easiest to do, it's almost a direct replacement for ShowWindow and HideWindow. You supply one constant to hide and another to show. There's also some neat stuff about creating floating windows, the Window Manager does the floating for you. -- Heather Donahue PGP Public Key at: http://pgpkeys.mit.edu:11371/pks/lookup?op=get&search=HeatherDonahue@...
