Creates a window and a worker thread.

virtual HRESULT PrepareWindow( );

Return Values

Returns NOERROR if successful; E_FAIL if unsuccessful.


The base window class creates a window and a worker thread. The worker thread is responsible for pulling messages from the window's input queue and dispatching them as appropriate. The window and its thread are created by CBaseWindow::PrepareWindow and destroyed in CBaseWindow::DoneWithWindow. The window should also be initialized and uninitialized through CBaseWindow::InitialiseWindow and CBaseWindow::UninitialiseWindow, respectively. Having prepared a window and initialized it, the window can be sized using CBaseWindow::ActivateWindow and subsequently hidden using CBaseWindow::InactivateWindow.
