Abstract: The invention provides a system and method which enable programs written in procedural languages to respond reactively to messages from event driven interfaces. An interface is provided between programs or window procedures written in procedural languages and the standard message queues of a standard event driven user interface, operating system and graphic engine. The interface pulls messages intended for the programs off of the queues and then forwards them to the appropriate program upon receipt of a call from the program.
