what's wrong with what i'm doing here????????

//contents of multimonex.h

#include "multimon.h"

class CMultiMonEx
{
public:
      CMultiMonEx(void) {};
      void CacheWorkAreas();
      BOOL CALLBACK MonitorEnumProc(HMONITOR hMonitor, HDC hdcMonitor, LPRECT lprcMonitor, LPARAM dwData);

      int nMonCount;
      LPRECT lpRectArray;
};

//////////// here are the contents of multimonex.cpp

#include "stdafx.h"
#pragma hdrstop

#include "multimonex.h"

void CMultiMonEx::CacheWorkAreas()
{
      nMonCount = 0;

      delete [] lpRectArray;

      lpRectArray = new RECT[GetSystemMetrics(SM_CMONITORS)];

      EnumDisplayMonitors(NULL, NULL, MonitorEnumProc, 0);
}

BOOL CALLBACK CMultiMonEx::MonitorEnumProc(HMONITOR hMonitor, HDC hdcMonitor, LPRECT lprcMonitor, LPARAM dwData)
{
      AfxMessageBox("asdf");
      return TRUE;
}

who know's what's going on? i'm getting this error:

error C2664: 'xEnumDisplayMonitors' : cannot convert parameter 3 from 'int (struct HMONITOR__ *,struct HDC__ *,struct tagRECT *,long)' to 'int (__stdcall *)(struct HMONITOR__ *,stru
ct HDC__ *,struct tagRECT *,long)'

i haven't a clue why it's doing this and it's making me quite angry!! :) am i missing something here?

for reference, look up EnumDisplayMonitors on msdn if you need to..

Define MonitorEnumProc as a static member function or a global function. Otherwise it has an implicit parameter which is the this pointer.

class CMultiMonEx
{
public:
CMultiMonEx(void) {};
void CacheWorkAreas();
static BOOL CALLBACK MonitorEnumProc(HMONITOR hMonitor, HDC hdcMonitor, LPRECT lprcMonitor, LPARAM dwData);

int nMonCount;
LPRECT lpRectArray;
};

this 'technically' worked, however, now i get the following messages.


error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _xEnumDisplayMonitors@16

error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _xGetSystemMetrics@4

is it a problem with teh way i might have (or not have) installed the platform sdk?

In your multimonex.cpp,

.
#define COMPILE_MULTIMON_STUBS
#include "multimonex.h"
.

And call InitMultipleMonitorStubs when your application starts up.

Look into multimon.h, you'll understand why they are needed.
