NAME

       object_message  -  Sends  a  message  to  an  object  and returns the answer. Allegro game
       programming library.

SYNOPSIS

       #include <allegro.h>

       int object_message(DIALOG *dialog, int msg, int c);

DESCRIPTION

       Sends a message to an object and returns the answer it has generated.  Remember  that  the
       first parameter is the dialog object (not a whole array) that you wish to send the message
       to. For example, to make the second object in a dialog draw itself, you might write:

          object_message(&dialog[1], MSG_DRAW, 0);

       The function will take care of scaring and unscaring the mouse if the message is MSG_DRAW.
