SendMessage WM_QUIT to my other App
Posted on 2006-06-22
I'm learning the concept of windows messages from online tutorials, i thought id try a sample program with my own idea. so i created a windows application A, overrided the WndProc function, made it listen for WM_QUIT messages, if it received one I called Application.Exit(). In application B, i enumerated the Process collection to find my application A, using the Process.Handle function i called SendMessage (sending a WM_QUIT) to my application A.
Regardless of doing this my application A still did not close. i am new to the win api and also windows messages, last night out of fustration i deleted the application A and B projects, can someone show me and explain to me how to do this?
if you need me to rewrite how i was currently doing it, i will rewrite and paste here.
i find windows messages an interesting concept and would love to further my knowledge in this.
