APIX version 1.0

Author - Jeff Simms CIS 72200,3173

April 27, 1992

The Apix Programmers Utility gives you instant access to the

API Declares - Constants - Types

File list for APIX:

Program Files: APIXGLOB.BAS - Nothing there now.
APIXCLIC.FRM - Holds Program Icon
APIXMAIN.FRM - Main Program Form.
APIX.MAK -The make file.

Text Files: APIABRV.TXT - Abbreviated API declares.
APICONST.TXT -API & VB Constant list.
APITYPE.TXT - API Types list.

Program installation:

The program code looks for the above text files in the "C:\VB" directory. Wherever you decide to place the files just make sure it's reflected in the ClearList Subroutine.

Program How-To:

1) To load main form click on program icon.
2)To add items to the selected list you double-click. You double-click to remove also.
3) Use the "ACT" Buttons to switch between lists:

A - The API Calls List
C - The API Constants List
T - The API Types List

The last button "Q" unloads the main form. To end the program you click on the program icon with the right button. You can use the keyboard to move quickly in a list.

Program Notes:

Program was coded on a monochrome display so color to suit before making executable.

To change constants to "global" you can change the code in the SelectFrom_DblClick sub to read 'ClipboardList.AddItem "Global Const" + SelectFrom.Text'

You can add or remove items from the APICONST.TXT with out much trouble.

To add items to the API Types list that are not in the "Type - End Type" format you can add them manually. DefInt A-Z was added this way.

"Const WM_USER = 1024" is added to the ClipboardList the first time you make a selection from API Constants.


If you get a "Bad DLL Calling Convention" refer to your copy of the WINAPI.TXT to make sure there isn't a missing ByVal (not caused by APIX) and that the variables are the correct type.

The Code is not commented out. I used descriptive sub and variable names that should help you follow the program if you're interested.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
