hwnd

Recommended Posts

I''m new to C++ as I''ve stated in most every other post I''ve made so please forgive this newbie question, but what exactly is hwnd? I keep seeing it in people''s postings but I don''t know what it is. I looked in my C++ book and it''s not mentioned so I''m assuming it has something to do with the Windows API and would be found in a Win32 app. Thanks...... Anaton Flying Tigers CFSG

To get in deeper, a handle is basically a pointer a pointer. So you can keep track of it. Hwnd is, as mentioned, a handle to a window. It is used widely through almost all of the functions in Win32 API and DirectX. It''s not a very big concept, and you don''t have to KNOW precisely everything about it, but just remember to get a basic concept of it and it always has to be in some functions!


Take it to the Xtreme!
