Filling Desktop (preferably with default desktop image or color)

Filling Desktop (preferably with default desktop image or color)

Post by Johnnie Norsworth » Thu, 09 Sep 1999 04:00:00

I am making a login program with an option to clear the station's desktop to
make the interface cleaner for machines that only use my application.  I'd
like to clear the desktop to the options set for the station such as
background image and color.

I would assume, since Windows already does it, that there is a simple
function that will do this before the desktop icons and start menu bar are

Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks.


1. App changes Windows desktop image color

I have an app written in Delphi 4 which changes the color of an image used
as wallpaper on the Windows desktop when the app starts and sometimes when
other forms in the app are opened.  When you drag the form, the image is
repainted normally in a trail from where it was.  It seems to happen
primarily when the display is set for 256 colors.  Any suggestions on what's
going on would be appreciated.
