None.

The code waits until the user dismisses the message box.  The message box will return a value dependig on what button was pressed (as described in the help files).

to be precise, you'd get IDOK (in your particular sample), IDCANCEL, IDYES, IDNO etc, depending on the buttons you requested to display

As already described by Andy, it is the value which will be returned to the caller code, rather than a message getting posted.

Thanks.  Would the AfxMessageBox function couse the OnActivatefunction to be called?  My problem is that I want my dialog fullscreen.  I have a tab control in my dialog and it is doing something funny as the dialog does not go fullscreen once the tabs dialogs are created.  If I put in AfxMessageBox in my OnInit then after I press OK it goes fullscreen.

BOOL CMyClass::OnInitDialog()
{
      SHINITDLGINFO shidi;
      shidi.dwMask = SHIDIM_FLAGS;
      shidi.dwFlags =SHIDIF_FULLSCREENNOMENUBAR;
      shidi.hDlg = m_hWnd;
      ::SHInitDialog(&shidi);

      SetForegroundWindow();

      SHFullScreen( m_hWnd, SHFS_HIDESTARTICON|
      SHFS_HIDETASKBAR|
      SHFS_HIDESIPBUTTON );

      MoveWindow(0,0,240,320,TRUE);

      HWND hWnd;
      hWnd = ::SHFindMenuBar(this->m_hWnd);
      ::ShowWindow(hWnd, SW_HIDE);
}

AND
void COptions::OnActivate(UINT nState, CWnd* pWndOther, BOOL bMinimized)
{
     CDialog::OnActivate(nState, pWndOther, bMinimized);

     SHFullScreen( m_hWnd, SHFS_HIDESTARTICON|SHFS_HIDETASKBAR|
                                                SHFS_HIDESIPBUTTON );

     MoveWindow(0,0,240,320,TRUE);

     HWND hWnd;
     hWnd = ::SHFindMenuBar(this->m_hWnd);
     ::ShowWindow(hWnd, SW_HIDE);

}

I create the dialogs for my tab control in the OnInit of my dialog like so:
//Tab Options
     dlgTab1Dlg = new CTab1(this);
     dlgTab1Dlg->Create(IDD_TAB1_DIALOG, this);
     dlgTab1Dlg->SetParent(&m_tabOptions);
     dlgTab1Dlg->ShowWindow(SW_SHOW);
     dlgTab1Dlg->SetWindowPos(NULL, rTab.left, rTab.top, rTab.Width(), rTab.Height(), SWP_NOZORDER);

     dlgTab2Dlg = new CTab2(this);
     dlgTab2Dlg->Create(IDD_TAB2_DIALOG, this);
     dlgTab2Dlg->SetParent(&m_tabOptions);
     dlgTab2Dlg->ShowWindow(SW_SHOW);
     dlgTab2Dlg->SetWindowPos(NULL, rTab.left, rTab.top, rTab.Width(), rTab.Height(), SWP_NOZORDER);

The above OnInit should be:
BOOL CMyClass::OnInitDialog()
{
//Tab Options
     m_tabOptions.InsertItem(0, _T("Tab 1"));
     m_tabOptions.InsertItem(1, _T("Tab 2"));
......
.....
     dlgTab1Dlg = new CTab1(this);
     dlgTab1Dlg->Create(IDD_TAB1_DIALOG, this);
     dlgTab1Dlg->SetParent(&m_tabOptions);
     dlgTab1Dlg->ShowWindow(SW_SHOW);
     dlgTab1Dlg->SetWindowPos(NULL, rTab.left, rTab.top, rTab.Width(), rTab.Height(), SWP_NOZORDER);

     dlgTab2Dlg = new CTab2(this);
     dlgTab2Dlg->Create(IDD_TAB2_DIALOG, this);
     dlgTab2Dlg->SetParent(&m_tabOptions);
     dlgTab2Dlg->ShowWindow(SW_SHOW);
     dlgTab2Dlg->SetWindowPos(NULL, rTab.left, rTab.top, rTab.Width(), rTab.Height(), SWP_NOZORDER);


      SHINITDLGINFO shidi;
      shidi.dwMask = SHIDIM_FLAGS;
      shidi.dwFlags =SHIDIF_FULLSCREENNOMENUBAR;
      shidi.hDlg = m_hWnd;
      ::SHInitDialog(&shidi);

      SetForegroundWindow();

      SHFullScreen( m_hWnd, SHFS_HIDESTARTICON|
      SHFS_HIDETASKBAR|
      SHFS_HIDESIPBUTTON );

      MoveWindow(0,0,240,320,TRUE);

      HWND hWnd;
      hWnd = ::SHFindMenuBar(this->m_hWnd);
      ::ShowWindow(hWnd, SW_HIDE);
}

Your app probably receives an onActive after the OnInitDialog completes as part of the normal procedure.  
The dialog is initialised, OnInit leaves then the dialog is actually shown then (I assume it is a dialog based app) a WM_ACTIVATE message is pumped to the app to indicate it is now the active window.

I guess you have something else not correct in your app.


ps.  I don't think it is very good to use the OnActivate to make it full screen.

Yes, you will receive WM_ACTIVATE each time when your window become active or inactive. One of the parameters of this message say if it is interprocess switch or not. Please take more details from here:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa922525.aspx
there is the following text: "This handle can be NULL, and is always NULL when the window being activated and the window being deactivated are in separate processes"
I saw a problem with it on old Pocket PCs, but I hope on Windows Mobile it will work fine.
So nice to meet someone who use C++ for his mobile development and not .NET. :)
Here is a part from my handling:
UINT nFlags = LOWORD(wParam);
BOOL bMinimized = (BOOL)HIWORD(wParam);
HWND hWnd = (HWND)lParam;
And this last handle is NULL if you have switch from another thread.
