Passing Command Line Args

Hello,
I have been trying to pass comand line arguments to my Owl program. What do I need to do to pass several comand line arguments back to my TDialog and process them? Does someone have any example code to do this?
Thanks for your help.

Regards, Gerry

Hi,

Your command line arguments are in globals, so include two lines
in your dialog source file

extern int   _argc;
extern char  **_argv;


//here is my own processing in MDI Client window

bool mxMDIClient::PreProcessMsg(MSG& msg)
     {
     static int first = 1;

     //process command line
     for(int i = 1; first && i < _argc && _argv[i] && *_argv[i]; i++)
         {
         OpenFile(_argv[i]);
         }
     first = 0;
 
     return TMDIClient::PreProcessMsg(msg);
     }


Hope this helpful
