Yet Another CenterForm Routine

In the April 1997 issue of VBPJ, you published a tip called "Consider the Taskbar When Centering Forms." You can center forms more easily with the SystemParametersInfo API call:
Private Declare Function _
	SystemParametersInfo Lib "user32" Alias _
	"SystemParametersInfoA" (ByVal uAction _
	As Long, ByVal uParam As Long, R As Any, _
	ByVal fuWinIni As Long) As Long
Private Type RECT
	Left As Long
	Top As Long
	Right As Long
	Bottom As Long
End Type
Private Const SPI_GETWORKAREA = 48
Public Sub CenterForm(frm As Form)
	Dim R As RECT, lRes As Long, 
	Dim lW As Long, lH As Long
	lRes = SystemParametersInfo( _
	If lRes Then
		With R
			.Left = Screen.TwipsPerPixelX * .Left
			.Top = Screen.TwipsPerPixelY * .Top
			.Right = Screen.TwipsPerPixelX * .Right
			.Bottom = Screen.TwipsPerPixelY * .Bottom
			lW = .Right - .Left
			lH = .Bottom - .Top
			frm.Move .Left + (lW - frm.Width) \ 2, _
				.Top + (lH - frm.Height) \ 2
		End With
	End If
End Sub
