A drop-in replacement for MessageBox()

, 4 Jan 2005
Other articles describe replacements for MessageBox() with extra buttons for "Yes to All" and "No to All", but you still have to write the code to handle those buttons. This article presents a class that does all the work for you.

#if _MSC_VER > 1000
#pragma once
#endif // _MSC_VER > 1000

// CRHYesNoToAllDialogAppDlg dialog

class CRHYesNoToAllDialogAppDlg : public CDialog
// Construction
	CRHYesNoToAllDialogAppDlg(CWnd* pParent = NULL);	// standard constructor

// Dialog Data
	int		v_NumberOfLines;
	CButton		c_CButton_MessageBox;
	CButton		c_CButton_CRHMessageBox;
	CListCtrl	c_TheList;

	// ClassWizard generated virtual function overrides
	virtual void DoDataExchange(CDataExchange* pDX);	// DDX/DDV support

// Implementation
	HICON m_hIcon;

	// Generated message map functions
