    Putting a Window in a class

    Right, I've thrashed around with this nightmare for a while and produced nothing. With the help of a friend I've come to a conclusion that I want to try and create a class for window creation so that's it's more readily accesible. Does anyone have any ideas how you would put that into action?

    For creating a Window C++ class you need the following:

    You'll want a static WndProc, an HWND member, and a Callback method. To get from the WndProc to the Callback you'll need a little something called SetWindowLong() with GWL_USERDATA. You'll see what I mean when you start wrapping it.

    You can take a look at MFC's CWnd class to get some ideas as well.
