public IntPtr Hwnd { get; }

public function get Hwnd () : IntPtr

This property returns the handle of the message window, and is used for creating Windows-based messages to identify the handle the message is sent to.

The following code example creates and sends a Windows-based message. The first parameter for the Create method is the handle ( Hwnd ) to the message window, which in this case is the handle to MsgWin, an instance of a derived class from MessageWindow. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the MessageWindow class.

Message msg = Message.Create(MsgWin.Hwnd,
 MsgWindow.WM_CUSTOMMSG,
 (IntPtr)e.X,
 (IntPtr)e.Y);
MessageWindow.SendMessage(ref msg);
