The framework calls this member for all windows after the user has logged on or off.

afx_msg void OnUserChanged();

This method receives the WM_USERCHANGED notification message, which is described in the Windows SDK. When the user logs on or off, the operating system updates user-specific settings. The system sends this message immediately after updating the settings.


This member function is called by the framework to allow your application to handle a Windows message. The parameters passed to your function reflect the parameters received by the framework when the message was received. If you call the base-class implementation of this function, that implementation will use the parameters originally passed with the message and not the parameters you supply to the function.
