Time Control Resource Create Send Notification Requesting Data

      This article describes a method for OS/2* Office to allow
the application to create the Time Control from a resource file and
pass the control data that contains the information needed at create
time.

      At create time the Time Control captures the WM_CREATE message.
The parameter that is to contain the pointer to the control data is
tested.  If the pointer is null a notification is sent to the control
owner requesting the control data and passing as one of the
parameters a pointer to the control data structure that must be
completed.  The application returns true to indicate to the control
successful completion of the notification message; false to indicate
failure.

      This process provides a means to pass the control data
structure when the Time Control is created from a resource file.
Before this invention there was not a means to allow the creation of
the Time Control from a resource file.
