Is there an equivalent in MFC of DoEvents in VB, doEvents in Java

We need to know what is the MFC Visual C++ equivalent of DoEvents() in Visual Basic or doEvents in Java.

The use of CEvent seems to be quite a heavy solution, just for allowing from time to time the operating system to get hand for executing other tasks.

Thanks for kind reply.

This will do

int DoEvents()
{
      MSG msg;
      int nCount = 0;

      while ( ::PeekMessage(&msg, NULL, NULL, NULL, PM_REMOVE) )
      {
            nCount++;
            ::TranslateMessage(&msg);
            ::DispatchMessage(&msg);
      }

      return nCount;
}

Good LUck
