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 = 0Public Const EWX_SHUTDOWN = 1Public Const EWX_REBOOT = 2Public Const EWX_FORCE = 4Public Const EWX_POWEROFF = 8

But in most cases you can get along passing the EWX_SHUTDOWN value, as in:

SHShutDownDialog EWX_SHUTDOWN
