AfxMessageBox-----------> What is Afx Means


  • Hi Sakthi,

    The AFX in stdafx.h stands for Application Framework eXtensions.
    It was the original abbreviation for the Microsoft Foundation Classes (MFC).

    StdAfx.h is a header file created by MFC application wizard that includes the MFC header afxwin.h.
    Other common includes can be specified here.
