SetWindowLong

Hellow experts...

In a cpp file almost the first line is this prototype.

LRESULT CALLBACK ShowPointWndProc(HWND, UINT, WPARAM, LPARAM);

Of course that function is defined at the bottom of the file.

The problem is this one.

In the InitDialog message (I am trying to subclass an item in the dialog) I am trying to:

WNDPROC OldAdd = SetWindowLong (hItemWnd, GWL_WNDPROC, (LONG)ShowPointWndProc);

This will never be compiled because the error is this.

DialogProcs.cpp(34) : error C2440: '=' : cannot convert from 'long' to 'long (__stdcall *)(struct HWND__ *,unsigned int,unsigned int,long)'

I tried:

WNDPROC OldAdd = SetWindowLong (hItemWnd, GWL_WNDPROC, (LONG)&ShowPointWndProc);

WNDPROC OldAdd = SetWindowLong (hItemWnd, GWL_WNDPROC, (WNDPROC)&ShowPointWndProc);

But nothing works...

Please help me.

Thank you very much.

Make it read

WNDPROC OldAdd = (WNDPROC) SetWindowLong (hItemWnd, GWL_WNDPROC, (LONG)ShowPointWndProc);

'SetWindowLong()' returns a 'long', you'll have to typecast when storing it as a 'WNDPROC'...
