they download as .c files and on the website of the tutorial they state they will only be using .c files, no cpp. lol but they do use C++ style comments (at least what i was taught were C++ style comments... // instead of /* */)
i'm still getting the same error though, no matter where HWND hChild is declared. what i dont get is it wants a ) before the ; on that line, but there is no ; on that line ?
So i just commented out the if part of my statement including the else so that it would just execute the code for the else situation..and it compiled and ran. *is really confused* ??
MENUITEM "&Redo", ID_EDIT_REDO
/* yep..lamer 8-) booyah */
so anyways, i tried different conditionals to see if something was going wrong in the if statement.. i changed my code to use whiles and i got the same error.
