InputBox using WinAPI.

Sample Image - InputBox.jpg


Do you know VB's InputBox? Me too. =)

So, this class is for those people who need VB-like InputBox in VC++.


The usage of this class is very easy:

Add InputBox.h and InputBox.cpp into your project, include InputBox.h to the file where you suppose to use Inputbox and:

#include "InputBox.h"


CInputBox ibox(hWndParent);
if (ibox.DoModal("Caption", "Prompt")) 
  MessageBox(NULL, ibox.Text, "Title", MB_OK);

In the constructor, you have to provide a valid hwnd of the parent window. Function DoModal(...) returns TRUE if button OK is pressed and FALSE if button Cancel.

CInputBox doesn't need resource file. You can use it with MFC or without one.

That's all.
