yeah i understand that WM_SIZE is only called when you try to resize the window and WM_Create is called when the window is created....
here is my message loop...
Now if my window has no resize button, how is it that csizex and csizey have values in them from wm_size? my understanding is that WM_SIZE will never be called in my program and therefore should have errors when the mouse button is clicked.
csizex = LOWORD(lParam);
csizey = HIWORD(lParam);
int mousex = LOWORD(lParam);
int mousey = HIWORD(lParam);
region = 0;
if (mousex < (csizex/2) && mousey <(csizey/2))
region = 1;
if (mousex > (csizex/2) && mousey <(csizey/2))
region = 2;
if (mousex < (csizex/2) && mousey >(csizey/2))
region = 3;
if (mousex > (csizex/2) && mousey >(csizey/2))
region = 4;
if (region>0) sprintf(regionbuff,"You clicked in Region %i",region);
else sprintf(regionbuff,"You clicked on a line!!!");
// vertical line
hdc = BeginPaint (hwnd, &ps) ;
MoveToEx (hdc, (csizex/2), 0, NULL) ;
LineTo (hdc, (csizex/2), csizey ) ;
// horizontal line
MoveToEx (hdc, 0, (csizey/2), NULL) ;
LineTo (hdc, (csizex), (csizey/2) ) ;
return DefWindowProc(hwnd, msg, wParam, lParam);
Basically this program draws to lines to divide the screen into 4 parts and then i detect which part is clicked in.
And another quick question, if i make a window 800x600 then that is the size of the whole window and not just the client area of the window right?
Thanks for your time
