    pw updates

    I am in the proccess of reading Programming Windows and I have noticed that it uses wndclass instead of the new wndclassex and I was wondering how many other functions were as outdated as this. Does anybody know of a list of updated functions? Thanks in advance.

    wndclassex just gives you a bit more flexibility if you need it. Often I find the ex functions and associated structures in the API usually offer things I simply don't need. There are exceptions, of course, as is the case with _beginthread() and _beginthreadex() but they are few and far between.
