Broken Windows (programming!)

Hi everybody,

i'm having a spot of bother with Win32 programming - just a basic step probably but heh its new to me. i'm using Borland C++ 4.5.

in my code i've issued a

static HINSTANCE g_hInst = NULL;

BOOL CALLBACK AboutDlgProc(HWND hwnd, UINT Message, WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam)


blah blah...




int ret;

...handle messages...

...and amongs things.......

ret=DialogBox(g_hInst, "ABOUTDLG", hwnd, AboutDlgProc);


however, when i compile i keep getting the following errors!

Error DLG_ONE.CPP 50: Cannot convert 'int (__stdcall *)(void *,unsigned int,unsigned int,long)' to 'int (__stdcall *)()' in function __stdcall WndProc(void *,unsigned int,unsigned int,long)

Error DLG_ONE.CPP 50: Type mismatch in parameter 'lpDialogFunc' in call to '__stdcall DialogBoxParamA(void *,const char *,void *,int (__stdcall *)(),long)' in function __stdcall WndProc(void *,unsigned int,unsigned int,long)

i really don't understand what i'm doing wrong.

i wondered if anybody knew whats up!

thanks and merry christmas in advance.
