In saying what does afx stand for I'm guessing that you are using Microsofts compiler and are looking at the source code generated by AppWizard and/or ClassWizard the afx when compiled is going to be reduced to whitespace, which means that it doesn't really matter.  It just tells you and Developer Studio that you are looking at windows message.

TAMC,

Maybe he's just curious about what it stands for.

russellk,
Were you just curious about what AFX stood for? If so, it stands for Application Framework (according to Scot Wingo in MFC Internals the 'X' doesn't really stand for anything).

I won't mind if you reject my answer and let Tom have the points if he answered your question, I just thought that you wanted to know what it did, and why it was there.

I think AFX means 'affix',which is used for extending meanings of  terms, fucntions or data, whatever.

>>>Appreciate the input

You appreciated it so much that...
1) you didn't take the time to realize that you accepted the answer from the wrong person (even though TAMC was very professional in showing you how to do that).
2) you awarded that person a 'D' when he and 2 other experts took THEIR time to answer YOUR question.

People like you are exactly the reason that many experts are starting to throw up their hands and say to hell with this forum! Check out the Experts Exchange and Suggestions forums to see exactly what I mean.

russellk,
That's ok. I will post a request to Linda.

TAMC,
I don't know you are aware of this or not, but in this case you will not lose the points. Typically what happens is that you will keep these points and Linda will award me points as well. She has always been very fair about this sort of thing since you didn't do anything wrong and did participate in the discussion.

Thanks for telling me Tom, and no I was not aware of this, if you look at my profile you will notice that I am quite new to this website.  Linda sounds like a nice gal.
