integratesome legacy functions from vee programs into new applications written invs.net.    We have this running pretty fine and overall the processof wrapping vee functions is painless  so anyone thinking about goingdown this route buy T&M toolkit, it makes life so much easier!</span></font></p><p class=MsoNormal><font size=2 face=Arial><span

called from vs.net runs within the     callable vee server window.   This is fine if the function is hidden,     ie has no user interface because in this case the callable vee server     window is not displayed.  However, if the function has a user     interface panel, the call brings up the callable vee server window and     displays the function within it.  We have been able to     programmatically set the size and position of the callable vee window but     does anyone know if it is possible to hide the title bar of the callable vee     window or at least change its name?   I am all for Agilent </span></font><font      size=2 face=Arial><span style='font-size:10.0pt;font-family:Arial'>marketing</span></font><font     size=2 face=Arial><span style='font-size:10.0pt;font-family:Arial'> its     products but it looks a bit clunky within the context of our application to     have the window title of Callable Vee Server with an Agilent     icon come up every time we run a user interface function.</span></font></li> <li class=MsoNormal><font size=2 face=Arial><span style='font-size:10.0pt;     font-family:Arial'>Related to 1.   When we run a vee function with     a user interface panel the callable vee server window runs and displays as     stated above.   This server window includes a top right hand     corner control for closing the server window.  This causes     problems.   If for example, the required user interface function     has an exit button or similar to cause function stop and exit and user     presses this there is no problem the function closes properly with no ill     effects.  However, if the user accidentally presses the callable vee     server close icon the server closes and the calling application     crashes?   Is there anyway we can disable the callable vee     server close control or at least trap when this event occurs?</span></font></li></ol><p class=MsoNormal><font size=2 face=Arial><span
