    Hiding prompt screen

    when compiling this program and executing, it pops up a message box on yes/no choices. However, I do not want the prompt screen to appear on the screen.

    I only want the message box to appear when the file is executed.

    Can someone give me an advice on this?

    Code:
    #include <windows.h>
    
    int main(void) {
    
    	int back;
    
    	back = MessageBox(NULL, "Is it sunny outside?", "Question", MB_YESNO | MB_ICONQUESTION);
    
    	return 0;
    }

    Don't use a console app? Is the easiest way.

    Otherwise, hide the window as soon as it appears, search around MSDN for such things like FindWindow() Show() or whatnot.

    Hello zacs7, been while.

    what's a console application?

    I'd like the prompt screen to not appear at all when the file is executed. And I quite don't know how and when I should be using FindWindow() nor Show().... ?

    Well, what IDE / compiler are you using?

    The best option is to use a Win32 Application (Or whatever), that way no window is created
