Adding Custom Items to System Menu :
This Script demonstrates how to add new custom items to the system menu and to respond to custom WM_SYSCOMMAND message generated by clicking that menu item.
The principle is similar to subclassing in VB but here we use the command provided by VDS 5 itself.

Please note that this script uses Non VDS dll and API calls.
Any errors/mistakes will crash VDS/Operating system.
Try at your own risk.

Enjoy.

Code:

#-Copyright: You can remove this info while Using this code in your app.------#
#------------but may be kind enough to add a word to documentation------------#
REM USE AT YOUR OWN RISK !!
REM MISTAKES MADE WHILE USING A NON VDS DLL MAY INVITE A VDS/SYSTEM CRASH.
REM SAVE YOUR WORK BEFORE RUNNING/DEBUGGING THIS SCRIPT.
