You are awarded 18.9 points for the demo, and 12 Bonus Points for the FN FlashPort call, which will be of use in the future for making people sick when using my programs. Please continue to write your demo's with these obscure but useful calls, so that my education can continue. :) Thought my monitor was blowing up, but apparently I was only flying inverted. Tedd your changes made for simplicity but deleted the EnterProc, and both you and Alain are docked for allowing No Call Required when a simple mind read would have told you that my prefs aren't set that way. I think between all of the demo's and exercises I have a hunch how to get all 41 points now though. I will post it when it is alive. Thank you, fine listers. Remember to always use FlashPort when your users haven't registered. :) That should do the trick nicely. Robert C.
