CHAIN_MSG_MAP_MEMBER 

Defines an entry in a message map.


CHAIN_MSG_MAP_MEMBER( theChainMember )

Parameters

theChainMember

[in] The name of the data member containing the message map.

CHAIN_MSG_MAP_MEMBER directs messages to a data member's default message map (declared with BEGIN_MSG_MAP). To direct messages to a data member's alternate message map (declared with ALT_MSG_MAP), use CHAIN_MSG_MAP_ALT_MEMBER.

NoteNote

Always begin a message map with BEGIN_MSG_MAP. You can then declare subsequent alternate message maps with ALT_MSG_MAP. The END_MSG_MAP macro marks the end of the message map. Every message map must have exactly one instance of BEGIN_MSG_MAP and END_MSG_MAP.

For more information about using message maps in ATL, see Message Maps.

class CMyClass : ...
{
public:
   CMyContainedClass m_obj;
   ...

   BEGIN_MSG_MAP(CMyClass)
      MESSAGE_HANDLER(WM_PAINT, OnPaint)
      // chain to default message map of m_obj
      CHAIN_MSG_MAP_MEMBER(m_obj)
   ALT_MSG_MAP(1)
      // chain to default message map of m_obj
      CHAIN_MSG_MAP(m_obj)
   ALT_MSG_MAP(2)
      MESSAGE_HANDLER(WM_CHAR, OnChar)
      // chain to alternate message map of m_obj
      CHAIN_MSG_MAP_ALT(m_obj, 1)
   END_MSG_MAP()

   ...
};

This example illustrates the following:

  • If a window procedure is using CMyClass's default message map and OnPaint does not handle a message, the message is directed to m_obj's default message map for processing.

  • If a window procedure is using the first alternate message map in CMyClass, all messages are directed to m_obj's default message map.

  • If a window procedure is using CMyClass's second alternate message map and OnChar does not handle a message, the message is directed to the specified alternate message map of m_obj. Class CMyContainedClass must have declared this message map with ALT_MSG_MAP(1).
