hint ids

What are hint ids and how are they used and defined?
1 Solution
Um...well it depends exactly what compiler you are on about, and what context really...

If by some amazing chance you are using vc/mfc, and are specifically refering to the doc/view update routine, then they are simply user defined values to let the view know something about the reason for the call from the document....normally defined as enums or hash defined...

Otherwise, I haven't a clue what you are talking about...so can you give me some more information?!

Refrain from shock and amazement, I am in fact using MSVC and MFC.  I am just unclear and desirous of documentation regarding the use of hint ids.  Where should they be initialized, and is their value quite arbitrary.
