    How to find out what the user pressed in MessageBox?

    Wierd, how do I found out whether the user pressed okay or cancel?

    this doesn't work, because it doesn't seem to return ****.

    Code:
    int a = MessageBox(NULL,"Press ok or cancel","Mmmm",1);

    Try

    if(a==IDOK)
    MessageBox(NULL,"OK","OK",0);

    afterwards.

    here are the values MessageBox() can return:

    0 - Message Box could not be created.
    IDABORT - Abort button was selected.
    IDCANCEL - Cancel button was selected.
    IDIGNORE - Ignore button was selected.
    IDNO - No button was selected.
    IDOK - OK button was selected.
    IDRETRY - Retry button was selected.
    IDYES - Yes button was selected
    Sometimes, the farthest point from the center is the center itself.

    Your life is your canvas, it's only as beautiful as you paint it.
