This procedure dispatches application defined event handlers and alternately executes default process for both standard or sub/super classed windows.

Map is defined as follows. In most cases I define this table in .data, but in can be in .const also. I choose writeable memory as application can redefine characteristics.

MWMap	            dd	0					; Address of sub or super class default proc
		dw	(MWEnd - MWMap - 6) / 6		; Determine number of messages in map
		dd	QuitApp
		dd	CMainWnd
  MWEnd	equ	$

Entry point of windows procedure requires only two instructions

MWndProc		proc

	  		mov	esi, offset MWMap			; Point to message map for this window
	  		jmp	ScanMap
  MWndProc		endp

By whatever means you choose to intialize WNDCLASSEX then entry point need only be specified as the 3 parameter

Wc		WNDCLASSEX	< 30h, CS_HREDRAW or CS_VREDRAW, MWndProc, 0, 0,\
				 0, 0, 0, COLOR_APPWORKSPACE + 1, NULL, AppName, 0>

Here is an example of the actual handler

CMainWnd		proc	uses	ebx edi
  			lea	ebx, Rc
  			mov	edi, [esi]
  			invoke	GetClientRect, dword ptr [esi], ebx	; Get client windows metrics
  			invoke	InflateRect, ebx, -32, -32		; Adjust for border
 			mov	eax, [ebx + 8]
 			sub	eax, [ebx]
			invoke	CreateWindowEx,
				32, 32, eax, 22, edi, 64, Wc.hInstance, NULL
