MessageBox With Timeout

This is a simple class that displays a message box and automatically closes it after a specified amount of time.

This class has a very simple interface

  • Two public constructors
  • 
    CMessageBoxEx()
    CMessageBoxEx(HWND hWnd, LPCTSTR lpText, LPCTSTR lpCaption, UINT uType, UINT uTimeOut, BOOL bShowTimeOut = TRUE)
    
  • Two public methods to execute Timed Out Message Box
    
    int DoMessageBox()
    int DoMessageBox(HWND hWnd, LPCTSTR lpText, LPCTSTR lpCaption, UINT uType, UINT uTimeOut, BOOL bShowTimeOut = TRUE)
    
    The object creates a thread to check time elapsed. When timeout is reached, the thread posts WM_CLOSE message to the message box.

      Use this desktop processor benefits and specifications comparison tool to find the right Intel Core processor for your business needs. huntsfive This paper addresses the issue of the optimal stock of international reserves in terms of a statistical model in which reserves affect both the probability of a Sudden Stop–as well as associated output costs–by reducing the balance-sheet effects of liability dollarization. Optimal reserves are derived under the assumption that central bankers conservatively choose reserves by balancing the expected cost of a Sudden Stop against the opportunity cost of holding reserves. Results are obtained without using calibration to match observed reserves levels, providing no a priori reason for our concept of optimal reserves to be in line with observed holdings. Remarkably, however, observed reserves on the eve of the global financial crisis were–on average–not distant from optimal reserves as derived in this model, indicating that reserve over-accumulation in Emerging Markets was not obvious. However, heterogeneity prevailed across regions: from a precautionary standpoint, Latin America was closest to model-based optimal levels, while reserves in Eastern Europe lay below optimal levels, and those in Asia lay above. Nonetheless, there are other motives for reserve accumulation: we find that differences between observed reserves and precautionary-motive optimal reserves are partly explained by the perceived presence of a lender of last resort, or characteristics such as being a large oil producer. However, to a first approximation, there is no clear evidence supporting the so-called neo-mercantilist motive for reserve accumulation. kleinbaum dobbin handheld půjčka+20000+bankovní+hypotékou+Jedná+se+o+půjčky+bez+registru+takže+i+když+má+žadatel+nějaký+škraloup+z+minulosti+nemusí+se+bát+že+by+mu+půjčka+nebyla+poskytnuta&d=tlu.edu.cn&oq=Tlu "named chemfinder

    • Create CMessageBoxEx once, call often ...

      First call was o.k., but in next calls the timer didn't run.
      Solution seems to be simple:
      In second constructor
      CMessageBoxEx::DoMessageBox(HWND hWnd,...)

      insert
      m_nResult = 0;

      before call TimedOutMessageBox().

      I also removed the first thread like suggested.
      Hope these changes work well in multithreaded applications.
      Nice class!

    • New Fix : Use WM_CLOSE instead of WM_QUIT

      Posted by Legacy on 03/31/2000 12:00am

      Here is a new fix for the class, which came from Alexandr after discussion between Alexandr and Me ( Martin-Pierre ) :

      Send the WM_CLOSE msg instead of WM_QUIT or WM_COMMAND|ID_OK

      Therefore, the line :

      PostMessage(FindWindow(NULL, pObject->m_szTimeOutCaption), WM_QUIT, 0, 0);

      becomes the line :

      PostMessage(FindWindow(NULL, pObject->m_szTimeOutCaption), WM_CLOSE, 0, 0);

      Any ideas on an elegant fix, or do I have to write something from scratch?
