I found out about this function on msdn.com and used the function according to their syntax and specifications. When I tried to compile it (In Dev-C++, on a Windows 98 system) it gave me errors telling me the flags I used were undeclared and that there is an implicit declaration of the AnimateWindow function. I don't know why it would not work at all, because all the info I used for the function came off MSDN.
Here are the errors:
`AW_ACTIVATE' undeclared (first use this function)
`AW_CENTER' undeclared (first use this function)
implicit declaration of function `int AnimateWindow(...)'
You're either using a version of the w32api headers and libs that don't include that function or you don't have "_WIN32_WINNT" defined >= 0x0500.
First try defining _WIN32_WINNT as 0x0500 - either before you include windows.h or project wide.
If it still can't find it, download the Win32 API "DevPak" for Dev-C++ here:
