easy MsgBox in Visual C++ 6.0 ??

Posted on 2002-05-10
Last Modified: 2009-03-31
I know there is a function Msgbox in Visual Basic to pop up a simple msg box for error or warning. But what is the easy way to do that in C++ 6.0 with MFC? Do I have to create a dialog in resourse? Sorry, I'm new.

Just use "AfxMessageBox()" - e.g. like

AfxMessageBox ( "This is a Test");

or "MessageBox()" in general.

MessageBox ( NULL, "This is a test", "Test Caption", MB_ICONINFORMATION | MB_OK);

BTW, regarding the question about the resource - no, you don't have to, Windows will take care of that in case of a message box.
