Re: Visual Basic API FAQs
I'm afraid you're wrong - the original code works fine. The problem you are having is due to the final parameter, the wFlags value.

Private Const SWP_NOACTIVATE = &H10
Private Const SWP_SHOWWINDOW = &H40
in the original code example two further bits are set, the first and second (&H1 and &H2):
Private Const SWP_NOSIZE = &H1
Private Const SWP_NOMOVE = &H2
as the name of these constants suggests they prevent the window being affected by the X, Y, cx and cy parameters.
change the last parameter to &H53 and you'll find that it'll all works fine.
the moral of the story is to not use magic numbers.
