AfxOleGetMessageFilter

Retrieves the application's current message filter.

COleMessageFilter* AFXAPI AfxOleGetMessageFilter( );

Return Value

A pointer to the current message filter.

Remarks

Call this function to access the current COleMessageFilter-derived object, just as you would call AfxGetApp to access the current application object.

Example

COleMessageFilter* pFilter = AfxOleGetMessageFilter();
ASSERT_VALID(pFilter);
pFilter->BeginBusyState();
// do things requiring a busy state
pFilter->EndBusyState();
// Another example 
//CWinApp-derived class
BOOL CCMFCAutomationApp::InitInstance()
{
    CWinApp::InitInstance();

    // Initialize OLE libraries 
    if (!AfxOleInit())
    {
        AfxMessageBox(IDP_OLE_INIT_FAILED);
        return FALSE;
    }

   CWinThread* pThread = AfxGetThread();
   if (pThread != NULL)
   {
      // Destroy message filter, thereby unregistering it. 
      delete pThread->m_pMessageFilter;
      pThread->m_pMessageFilter = NULL;

      // Create the new message filter object. 
      //CMyMessageFilter is derived from COleMessageFilter
      pThread->m_pMessageFilter = new CMyMessageFilter;
      ASSERT(AfxOleGetMessageFilter() != NULL);

      // Register the new message filter object.
      AfxOleGetMessageFilter()->Register();
   }
   //... 
   //... 
   //...
