    Proper use of duo timers.......

    Just asking if this is the proper way to do it. I haven't tested it out yet(too much work). *cough* Here it goes........

    Code:
    const int ID_TIMER= 1;
    const int ID_TIMER2= 2;
    
    WM_CREATE:
     SetTimer(hwnd, ID_TIMER, 100, NULL);
     SetTimer(hwnd, ID_TIMER2, 500, NULL);
     break;
    WM_TIMER:
     {          // Everytime I make a timer I always use brackets, don't ask why
      if(ID_TIMER==wParam) {
      DoThis(); }
      if(ID_TIMER2==wParam) {
      DoSomethingElse(); }
     }
     break;

    don't forget to KillTimer() at some point. and why do you feel the need to comment the use of brackets there? It's not abnormal to use brackets in a case.

    I know that I have to kill both timers. Also, some people on these forums are a little picky. I was just trying to avoid bashing ya' know. Didn't want someone to reply to the post saying, "Only idiots use brackets" or anything like that. I don't know why some programmers say things like that.

    Anyways, I hope this duo timer thing works in my game.
