Hi, jimmy...
i can't give you my code, because i'm not in my home...(i don't have internet conexion :(...)
but is something like this:
.elseif eax==1018  ;my button
mov hFile, eax
invoke WriteFile,hFile,offset string,SIZEOF string,offset WriteSize,0
invoke MessageBeep,MB_OK
invoke CloseHandle,hFile
can you correct the code and put some notes?

Maybe you forgot the call to SetFilePointer before your call to WriteFile.

invoke SetFilePointer, hFile,0,0, FILE_END

Great. Good job! :D

... and no I haven't received any email. I checked my trash and my spam folder. Did you send it to gmail?

... and btw: use: string        db          'my string',10,13,0

Although 10,13 works, the standard sequence is CR/LF or 13,10.

Also, WriteFile is a binary write, so embedded zero bytes will be written to the file. The number of bytes written is controlled by a size argument.

Nevertheless, it's a good habit to zero-terminate all strings ;)

Nevertheless, it's a good habit to zero-terminate all strings ;)

As long as you only write sizeof(string)-1 or strlen(string) to the file.
