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:
