I am writing a login program which can be set-up to execute in front
of another application. The VB program askes for a name, etc. and then
saves that data to a data base and then launches the target software.
I've got that done, no big deal. What I need now though is some way
to monitor the target application. I need to tell:
1) When the application is exited.
2) If the application has been dormant for 'x' number of minutes.
This is so that I can actually have a prayer of expecting people to logout.
I don't need anything as serious as full code, just a direction to head
in the help files.
I've heard lots of "Something with the OLE's I think..." but that has
not been much help. From what I have seen, OLE's are good for being
able to embedding objects from Word, or whatever, but nothing for checking
on the condition of another executable.
Thank-you in advance.
