    Question about WM_COMMAND

    Hello,

    In a small Win32 game of mine, I am passing Windows messages to functions instead of handling them in my WndProc, and it works fine with messages like WM_MOUSEMOVE, but WM_COMMAND doesn't seem to work. Am I doing anything wrong?

    Code:
    if (Msg.message == WM_COMMAND)
       if (LOWORD(wParam) == ID_BUTTON)
          if (HIWORD(wParam) == BN_CLICKED)
             MessageBox(NULL, TEXT("Testing..."), TEXT("Test"), MB_OK);
    Thanks.

    Some messages are sent rather than posted, and will never be returned by GetMessage. More on this in the comments section of this page.

    Alright, thanks. I just used this instead:

    Code:
    case WM_COMMAND:
    	PostMessage(NULL, WM_COMMAND, wParam, lParam);
    	break;
