Using a Window or Thread to Process Driver Messages

To use a window callback function, specify the CALLBACK_WINDOW flag in the fdwOpen parameter and a window handle in the low-order word of the dwCallback parameter of the waveInOpen or waveOutOpen function. Driver messages will be sent to the window procedure for the window identified by the handle in dwCallback.

Similarly, to use a thread callback, specify CALLBACK_THREAD and a thread handle in the call to waveInOpen or waveOutOpen. In this case, messages are posted to the specified thread instead of to a window.

Messages sent to the window or thread callback are specific to the audio device type used. For more information about these messages, see Playing Waveform-Audio Files.
