Is There A Way Of Determining If A Laptop Is Docked or Undocked Using A VB .NET Program?

P: n/a
Hi,

Under VB4 I used to be able to call the GetCurrentHWProfile API to determine
if my laptop was docked or not. I did try converting this call in VB .NET
but whatever I do I get a SystemExecutionException.

I'm very new to VB .NET and discovered there are some interesting new
classes that provide system information only previously available via APIs.

Does anyone know of a way that I could determine the docking status without
calling APIs as it seems preferable to avoid calling unmanaged DLLs if
possible.

Regards,

Brian.
