According to my book, its :

cWndPtr&=GetNewCWindow(windowID,wStorage&,behind)

cWndPtr& - a window pointer (null means it could not do it)
windowID - resource ID of type _"WIND" template to create
wStorage& - address of a CWindowRecord, NIL=allocate one
behind -   -1=in front, NIL=in back

So you'd probably do it something like this :

WndPtr&=FN GETNEWCWINDOW(128,0,-1)

If WndPtr& was not zero, you got one.
