    Getting a HWND

    I am dabling in DLLs and to test I want to pop up a textbox that says "Dll loaded" or something. I don't have an HWND to send the MessageBox to. I usually code in MFC appwizard apps, and have an m_hWnd handle.

    How do I get an HWND when there is not one associated with my application, or in this case a DLL.
    Best Regards,

    Bonkey

    If you just need a MessageBox, use NULL as HWND parameter.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Thanks that worked. I didn't realize it could be null.
    Best Regards,
