DOCERR: WM_ENTERIDLE Documentation Is Misleading PSS ID Number: Q102446 Article last modified on 07-27-1994
|The information in this article applies to:|
|- Microsoft Win32 Software Development Kit (SDK) for Windows NT version 3.1|
The Win32 application programming interface (API) online documentation for the WM_ENTERIDLE message states the following:
The WM_ENTERIDLE message informs an application’s main window procedure that a modal dialog box or menu is entering an idle state.
This is incorrect for dialog boxes. The WM_ENTERIDLE message is sent to the dialog box’s owner window rather than the application’s main window as the documentation states.
A modal dialog box or menu enters an idle state when no messages are waiting in its queue after it has processed one or more previous messages.
The Win32 SDK, version 3.5 documentation has been corrected.
