Wrong method.
Uses Win32 system api to test if frozen.

Would you mind explaining that, or do you always just throw in some comment and hope that you're right?

I would send it a private message -- WM_USER+1 for example. But you will want to register the private message so that something else doesn't try to use the same number for another purpose.

thanks, ill try it
