Under the Hood

MAIN_DIALOG inherits WEL_MAIN_DIALOG which provides the feature put_command, used to associate a WEL_COMMAND to a Windows message received by the window. A WEL_COMMAND contains a deferred feature, execute which is executed when the command is fired. SHOW_COMMAND_INFORMATION, SHOW_MOUSE_BUTTON_INFORMATION and SHOW_MOVE_INFORMATION all inherit WEL_COMMAND .

Note: execute has an argument of type ANY which is used to pass any additional information required.
