I really have no idea what I am doing wrong, but I cannot seem to get Rev's windowID converted over to a HWND in an external.. I grabbed some really old code of mine that seems to have worked previously, but no longer works.. And using the same method I use writing Mac externals seems to fail as well..

my old way

Code: Select all

HWND tWindowRef = (HWND)atol(p_arguments[0]);
from the mac

Code: Select all

HWND tWindowRef = (HWND)strol(p_arguments[0], NULL, 0);
I include windows.h, stdlib.h and stdio.h ... Am I missing an include? Am I messing something up with one of the conversions? Do I need more sleep? Should I just forget about Windows?

If I remember correctly, I used the atoi() function and then casted it to HWND type using something akin to the following:

HWND hwnd = (HWND)atoi(p_arguments[0]);

atol() would probably work too but I don't think it needs to be a long integer.

EDIT: YES your includes are fine, YES you need more sleep and NO do not give up on windows!

Looks like all the above do work, just the debugger from MS is a piece of garbage compared to Xcode..
