I would stongly advocate using ToolBook's syntax. To the best of my
knowledge it remains the only xTalk capable of making direct system
calls, and has done so for more than a decade.
Although it's been a few years since I worked with it I remember writing
some routines that directly used the Win API for drawing shapes for a
custom window and it was a snap.
TookBook changed hands again -- originally published by Asymetrix and
then Click2Learn, it's now in the hands of Sum Total Systems -- a demo
is available, which should include the docs:
