Windows Choose Color Common Dialog - with stored custom colors. WickedX use it with BlueGUI to put it in a centered child window.

The DarkBasic Professional version I use has the functions Desktop Width and Desktop Height which is what your first snippet does. There are hundreds of useful dll's with thousands of useful functions. What is useful depends on your needs. Here are a couple you may or may not find useful.

Check out my old thread, I made my addons by checking this forum, and by interrigating the MSDN Function Database to exploit whatever I Could.

Here is the code from the thread which was labled "The Ultimate Windows DLL Include File"



These weremade in a time of XP, many many years ago, but I assume they should work on modern windows aswell as they inherited many of the same functions.

Download something from the Web (a.e html-Source, Zip-File or more)



This will download the content of url$ to a localfile (wwwfile$)

Do we need to specify the specific file name in the website for wwwfile$ ?
Or we can just input any name for wwwfile$, and all the files will be downloaded automatically?

It is a request for a specific url which will return whatever resource is at that address: file, page, etc
