A windoze "C" question

If two different applications register the same message string, the applications return the same message value. The message remains registered until the Windows session ends.
like this ........

UINT NEW_MSG  = RegisterWindowMessage("NEW_BROADCAST_MESSAGE")

And 1 app can broadcast the new message.

PostMessage(HWND_BROADCAST, NEW_MSG,  wParam,  LPARAM lParam);

How does the other app use it's received NEW_MSG when integral constants are required by
CASE: ??????

case WM_COMMAND:
switch(LOWORD (wParam)) {
case NEW_MSG: // ERROR !!!!!!!!!!!

1. Test again the message not the parameter WPARAM.
2. use an if statement separate from your case statement (you can't test using a case statement for the reason you state, this is limitation of switch/case)

e.g.

LRESULT WndProc( HWND hWnd, UINT uMessage, WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam )
{

if ( uMessage == NEW_MSG )
{
/* Do something */
return 0;
}

switch (uMessage)
{
 /* etc */
0
