    Re: Displaying message in vc in win32 application.

    Hi...

    You can use following code snippet to display message in vc++

    public:
       void PerformCalculations()
       {
          // Code is entered here that performs a calculation
          // Display a message box informing the user that the calculations
          // are complete
          MessageBox::Show(S"The calculations are complete",
             S"My Application", MessageBoxButtons::OKCancel,
             MessageBoxIcon::Asterisk);
       }

    Please mark as answer if it is desired answer
