theres a warning because no case statement but thats fine for now. I cant get the buttons to work. The reason im using if/else if is because if i use case IDC_Server: etc it does all case statements then quits instead of just doing the case statement for that button.

Any ideas what im doing wrong :(

case WM_COMMAND:
		switch(wParam)
		{
			if(IDC_Server)
			{
				SendMessage(hwServer, BM_SETCHECK, 1, 0);
				SendMessage(hwClient, BM_SETCHECK, 0, 0);
				SetWindowText(hwStart, "Listen");
				}
			else if(IDC_Client)
			{
				SendMessage(hwClient, BM_SETCHECK, 1, 0);
				SendMessage(hwServer, BM_SETCHECK, 0, 0);
				SetWindowText(hwStart, "Connect");
			}
			else if(IDC_Quit)
			{
				EndDialog(hWndDlg, 0);
				return TRUE;
			}
		}
	}
	return FALSE;
}

an switch stucture works with 'case' + don't forget to add 'break' at the end

The reason im using if/else if is because if i use case IDC_Server: etc it does all case statements then quits instead of just doing the case statement for that button.

break it off !!!

break it off !!!

yip i kinda figured that out lol :(
