But of course why bother with WinAPI when BudAPI has it all for you
If you think you want to use the WinAPI, make sure you take a look at BudAPI first! BudAPI is known throughout the Director and Authorware world as a wonderful tool for extending both products.
Not only does it work woth both Director and Authorware, it is cross-platform too and so it works on PC and Mac. This is not true of WinAPI!
You can use a couple of BudAPIs functions in an application without purchasing it. Or:-
The Limited Edition costs US $80 or $AUD 140, plus 10% GST for Australian residents. In this version, the Xtra allows you to call any seven functions in any projector or packaged application. Each function can be called multiple times. Full commercial use of the UCD/U32 is also included. Support is provided by e-mail.
The Full Version costs US $160 or $AUD 280, plus 10% GST for Australian residents. This contains a fully unlocked version of both the Xtra and the UCD/U32. Support is provided by e-mail. An upgrade to the full version from the limited version costs US $80 or $AUD 140, plus 10% GST for Australian residents.
This is a cheap plugin that can save you hours of work and frustration!
