Sample text

This document is created with the unregistered version of CHM2PDF Pilot When I say that "Windows sends a message to the program" I mean that Windows calls a function within the program a function that you write and which is an essential part of your program's code. The parameters to this function describe the particular message that is being sent by Windows and received by your program. " You are undoubtedly accustomed to the idea of a program making calls to the operating system. This is how a program opens a disk file, for example.

The only argument to the function is a pointer to the WNDCLASS structure. Actually, there's a RegisterClassA function that takes a pointer to the WNDCLASSA structure, and a RegisterClassW function that takes a pointer to the WNDCLASSW structure. Which function the program uses to register the window class determines whether messages sent to the window will contain ASCII text or Unicode text. This document is created with the unregistered version of CHM2PDF Pilot Now here's a problem: If you have compiled the program with the UNICODE identifier defined, your program will call RegisterClassW.

With sprintf, you still have to worry about that and you also have a new worry: the character buffer you define must be large enough for the result. A Microsoft-specific function named _snprintf solves this problem by introducing another argument that indicates the size of the buffer in characters. A variation of sprintf is vsprintf, which has only three arguments. The vsprintf function is used to implement a function of your own that must perform printf-like formatting of a variable number of arguments.
