Is it possible to create a class that processes an entire Win32 program? I want to be able to have a class something like this: class CMain { public: CMain(); ~CMain(); int WINAPI WinMain(HINSTANCE hinstance, HINSTANCE hPrevInstance, LPSTR lpCmdLine, int nShowCmd); LRESULT CALLBACK WindowProc(HWND hwnd, UINT msg, WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam); } Is something like this possible, or am I forced to have the main API functions outside of my class?

I think you''ll have to have the WinMain procedure outside of the class as the Windows Kernel calls that directly and won''t look for it inside a class. But other than that, I believe anything else can essentially be inside the class.

Thanks guys, I think I got it working pretty good. I have a WinMain and a WindowProc outside of any object, but everything else is handled by another class.
