About a year after I started programming in Visual Basic, Windows API functions started fascinating me.
They were so powerful,
compared to the ordinary Visual Basic functions, however
there wasn't that much good information about them
online. Five years ago, a VB API programmer really had
to do a lot of online digging before finding something
It was, in fact, bad enough for us to decide to start
our own homepage about using the API in Visual Basic.
As years went by,
traffic exploded almost exponentially and AllAPI.net
became well known under the VB API programmers.
everything must come to an end; today, it's time for
AllAPI.net to end.
The site became too big
for us to handle in our spare time. Practically every
free minute we had went to the site, and this became
unbearable. We had to make some decisions and one of
them was to stop working on AllAPI.net.
This was obviously a
hard decision for us to make, since we spent countless
hours working on the site, but nevertheless it's a necessary decision.
So, what's going to
happen to the site? Well, we're going to keep it online for the foreseeable future. By
the time this site goes offline, Visual Basic 5/6 and the Win32 API functions will
probably be ancient technology. And when it does, we'll definitely give an advance warning.
Thank you for visiting AllAPI.net.
