Display the "Shut down Windows" dialog

To programmatically display the "Shut down Windows" standard dialog box you can use the SHShutDownDialog undocumented API function, whose declaration is:


Declare Function SHShutDownDialog Lib "shell32" Alias "#60" (ByVal lType As _
    Long) As Long
Its only argument can be one of these constants:

Public Const EWX_LOGOFF = 0
Public Const EWX_SHUTDOWN = 1
Public Const EWX_REBOOT = 2
Public Const EWX_FORCE = 4
Public Const EWX_POWEROFF = 8
But in most cases you can get along passing the EWX_SHUTDOWN value, as in:

SHShutDownDialog EWX_SHUTDOWN
