WDAPI: Help about the APIs
Overview
WDAPI simplifies the use of Windows APIs in a WINDEV application. WDAPI generates the WLanguage code and structures allowing the use of a given Windows API.
WDAPI DOES NOT document the operating mode of each Windows API of the system!
However, WDAPI gives you the ability to directly run a site or a document (of your choice) corresponding to the documentation of the Windows APIs. If a function, a structure or a constant is selected in WDAPI, you can display the corresponding help page.
Note: The list of Windows APIs supplied with WDAPI is NOT exhaustive.
Reminder: WDAPI can be started from the maintenance center of WINDEV ("Tools .. WDTool - Maintenance center").Reminder: WDAPI can be started from WDTool: on the "Tools" pane, in the "Utilities" group, click "WDTool".
Getting help about a feature of the Windows API

Configuring WDAPI to get help about a function, structure or constant of the Windows API

To configure WDAPI to get help about a function, structure or constant of the Windows API:
  1. Select the "Favorite sites" pane.
  2. Specify the address corresponding to the site proposing the help about the requested element (function, structure or constant). You can:
    • Select an address found in the list.
    • Add a new address. To do so, type the new address and click the [Add] button.
The address can also correspond to:
  • an Internet address (for example: http://www.myfavoritesite.com).
  • a full path to a document (for example: C:\My Documents\APIInfo.doc).
  • an application (for example: \\APIStation\Tools\ApiPlus.exe).
This address can directly open the site on the help of the selected element (function, constant or structure).
If the initial address is using the element name, the name of the function, constant or structure must be replaced by the [%FUNCTION%] keyword in the initial address.
For example:
http://www.apifunctions.com/found.asp?function=[%FUNCTION%]
If the initial address is using the first letter of the element (alphabetical index for example), the letter must be replaced by the [%STARTFUNCT%] keyword in the initial address.
For example:
http://www.apifunctions.com/found.asp?function=[%STARTFUNCT%]

Getting help about a function, structure or constant of the Windows API

To get help about a function, structure or constant of the Windows API:
  1. Select a function (or a structure or a variable) in WDAPI.
  2. Click the "Start the link to my API help site" link.
The site selected in the "Preferred sites" pane is automatically started.
