WinEvent is a collection of useful functions that can be used to extend the functionality of your program, and save yourself a lot of time.

The functions are collected together into groups and include things like RS 232 (Serial Port) Reading and Writing, WinAlert for trapping windows messages, Taskbar function, System functions, Window behavior functions, and more. Most of the functionality provided by WinEvent is built into Windows itself in one way or another. WinEvent wraps these API calls into simple Clarion functions that you can easily use in your own code.

WinEvent requires StringTheory

WinEvent is shipped as source code, and does not include any black-box DLL's.

All WinEvent functions can be used in ABC or Clarion(Legacy) programs.


WinEvent is the perfect tool for writing background applications. Things like receiving data from a serial barcode scanner, sending data to a Point of Sale cash register or interfacing with other Serial hardware becomes trivial using the Communications functions. The Taskbar functions allow you to hide your background process away, like other background Window programs, in the System tray. You can play WAV files or bring your window to the front to alert the user that something is wrong. In addition, the message trapping allows your program to quit gracefully when Windows is shut down. The Free Disk Space feature even allows you to monitor disk space, alerting the user when it drops too low!
