    HWND not working properly

    ok so i make my window and declare
    Code:
    HWND hwnd
    at the top

    so then i set a member variable to hwnd with
    Code:
    _pGameEngine->SetHandleToWindow(hwnd);
    this member name is m_hwnd

    so when i try to use m_hwnd, becouse my windows proc calls and functions inside my engine which handles the messages, nothing happens but when i just use hwnd it works, why cant i just set m_hwnd equal to hwnd and have it work?

    ok i figured it out i was setting it equal before i put properties to it, sorry for being a retartd so remember kiddies set equal after something like this
    Code:
        if(!(hwnd = CreateWindowEx(
                  NULL,                                   //extended style
                  WINDOW_CLASS_NAME,                            //class
                  "Engine IKnow",                    //title
                  WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW | WS_VISIBLE,       
                  0, -30,                                    //initial x,y  (trick 0,-30)
                  2000,2000,                                //initial width, height  (trick 2000,2000)
                  NULL,                                   //handle to parent
                  NULL,                                   //handle to menu
                  hinstance,                              //instance of the application
                  NULL)))
