    Please look at the forum hints and tips as they pertain to choosing a title for threads. CAPS and exclamation points will do nothing to quicken responses and will cause most people to bypass your thread. Besides the fact that your title has nothing to do with the content of your thread and does nothing to express the core problem.

    2. Use descriptive subject lines. Do not put URGENT!, or NEED HELP NOW, etc. in your title; it will not make people look at it any faster. Doing this makes many old time helpers on this board not look at the post at all
    And now to the problem:

    This looks like MFC which is telling me it belongs on another forum. But the core problem is that MoveButton() has not been declared correctly so the macro ON_COMMAND_RANGE cannot recognize MoveButton() as a valid function to call. You must declare MoveButton() exactly as the macro expects. Look at the error message closely and it will tell you everything you need to know.

    I have been seeing so many Windows-specific problems in the general areas and since no one does anything about it (prior to this) I just assumed that it was allowed under the theory that "all the world runs Windows" thus the mistake was accepted as business as usual. I do agree on the caps and such; it feels like the poster is demanding work to be done for them in which case I just tend to move on, regardless of platform.

    2 post and both got the same response, 'wrong way to ask the question and wrong forum'.

    Look at MSDN - ON_COMMAND_RANGE (MFC)

    In the code example, you will see that the function that ON_COMMAND_RANGE expects is a member function that returns void and expects a UINT (unsigned int).

    The function you are trying to pass is a global function returning an int, so the compiler is not happy.

    You should just delete this thread and force him to make one properly, most people won't learn unless you force them to which make the forum rules effectively useless. Think about it, he acts like an idiot and still gets the help, what function did the rules actually, objectively, serve?

    Rewarding deliberate attempts to ignore the rules doesn't make sense.

    ... the way he types is annoying the crap out of me, spend a friggin second to proof-read. Are you posting on this forum from a cell phone? If so it's called 'iTAP English', use it.

    I know. Annoying as hell. But surely it's better for him to understand why people dont like his approach and to learn a little nettiquete than to just delete his stuff?

    Maybe I'm too soft, but surely even l33t speaking kids deserve a second chance furing Xmas dont they?

    If he keeps it up I will start to prune his stuff though...

    Fordy,

    I usually ignore it, but every now and then I cringe when mods complain about rules but do little to enforce lol.

    I would be an evil mod, I would 'trade' answers for reformatting titles and crap. Now that's more like a system that enforces its rules, negotiating rewards.

    I don't really care as much as I sound like I do, still, the principle/logic of the whole thing always nags me in the back of my mind.

    My mind controls itself, I just act as a proxy.

    I like how in that one dog show, the dog whisperer?, it's really not about training the dogs... it's about training the people, then the dogs behave because people respect the dogs nature and actually understand, which changes the whole dynamic achieving cooperation. That doesn't really apply, I just thought it did from some weird perspective before I started writing this and now I forgot. Damn.

    Get the hint. The two answers provided show more effort on the poster's part than you have shown on your posts.

    I gave you the answer. If you cant work it out even when its spoon fed to you then I suggest taking up a different endevour.

    Keep in mind, though, that the advice here is given free of charge, and as such the courteous thing to do is to make an earnest effort to make a good presentation. Use a title that actually describes the problem, in condensed form. Describe your problem as thoroughly and clearly as possible. Follow up on responses. Et cetera.

    With respect to your problem, the issue is a mismatch in function signatures, as Fordy already pointed out.
