Delay MessageBox with auto-close option

, , 13 Aug 2002 Ms-PL
This message box delays its dismissal by disabling the OK button for a delay interval. It also has an optional auto-close feature. There are two versions, one uses a WH_CBT hook and some basic window tricks like sub-classing to achieve its goal. The other one is more MFC-ied.
#pragma once

class CDelayMessageBox2 : public CWnd
{
	DECLARE_DYNAMIC(CDelayMessageBox2)

public:
	CDelayMessageBox2(CWnd* pParent);

	enum MBIcon
	{
		MBICONNONE = 0,
		MBICONSTOP = MB_ICONSTOP,
		MBICONQUESTION = MB_ICONQUESTION,
		MBICONEXCLAMATION = MB_ICONEXCLAMATION,
		MBICONINFORMATION = MB_ICONINFORMATION
	};

	int MessageBox(LPCTSTR lpszText, int count, bool bclose = false, MBIcon icon = MBICONNONE );	

protected:
	int m_count;
	bool m_autoclose;	
	HWND  m_hWndParent;

	CString FormTitle(int num);

	virtual LRESULT DefWindowProc(UINT message, WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam);
	afx_msg LRESULT OnSubclassedInit(WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam);
	afx_msg int OnCreate(LPCREATESTRUCT lpCreateStruct);
	afx_msg void OnTimer(UINT nIDEvent);

	DECLARE_MESSAGE_MAP()
};
