Trying to figure out how to get a call to SetTimer to work with a generic class member function as TimerProc instead of a global TimerProc function.  I do not want to use CWnd and cannot seem to do this with the Windows SDK SetTimer Function.  Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

That class member function must be a static member function. Otherwise, a non-static member function has a implicit paramter, which is the this pointer. Thus, the function prototype does not comply the one required by SetTimer.

error C2664: 'SetTimer' : cannot convert parameter 4 from 'void (struct HWND__ *,unsigned int,unsigned int,unsigned long)' to 'void (__stdcall *)(struct HWND__ *,unsigned int,unsigned i
nt,unsigned long)'

this is the error I get. Are you saying that I cannot give SetTimer a Class member function.

so CClass::TimerProc(etc...) will not work? I need the this pointer.

CClass::TimerProc has to be a static member function. If you want to access the this pointer, you may use a static member variable to record the this pointer.

class CClass
{
//...

public:
    static CClass *m_pThis;

//...
};


// Initialization
CClass *CClass::m_pThis = NULL;


// Set m_pThis before calling SetTimer in a member function of CClass.
m_pThis = this;


CClass::TimerProc
{

CClass::m_pThis->...

}
