Sounds like you need to learn how to program Windows. If you're going to use Win32Ada (which I do NOT recommend), then you should read a book like Petzold. Claw contains a couple of tutorials that would help you get started (in the Introductory version, use the tutorial in the Builder). I don't know if there is anything for Windex. To answer your questions specifically, the button is handled by handling the WM_COMMAND message in the dialog box, usually for the "clicked" notification. To handle "Enter" in the edit control, you have to subclass the control. That can be a bit tricky. Claw will do it for you if it is necessary; you just have to override the When_Character action routine to detect an <Enter>. I don't know if Windex will do it for you. For Win32, you better get a book. A reminder: the Claw Introductory Edition is free for evaluation and for non-commercial use; download it from www.rrsoftware.com. If you're confused by the terminology above, see my first suggestion. Randy.
