WM_CREATE message

Sent when an application requests that a window be created by calling the CreateWindowEx or CreateWindow function. (The message is sent before the function returns.) The window procedure of the new window receives this message after the window is created, but before the window becomes visible.

A window receives this message through its WindowProc function.


#define WM_CREATE                       0x0001

Parameters

wParam
