Defines an entry in a message map.

CHAIN_MSG_MAP_ALT( theChainClass, msgMapID )


[in] The name of the base class containing the message map.


[in] The message map identifier.

CHAIN_MSG_MAP_ALT directs messages to an alternate message map in a base class. You must have declared this alternate message map with ALT_MSG_MAP(msgMapID). To direct messages to a base class's default message map (declared with BEGIN_MSG_MAP), use CHAIN_MSG_MAP. For an example, see CHAIN_MSG_MAP.


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.
