SetTimer -> OnTimer driving me crazy

I found numerous examples of SetTimer and OnTimer examples on the web and
they all look similiar to what I have tried here, but my OnTimer function is
never executed.

I created a SDF Application and launched a dialog off of the menu. In the
Dialog I call a SetTimer and then delcared a OnTimer function also a member
of the same dialog object. I never get the TRACE statement in the OnTimer
to fire and a button displays that the global_sent variable is never

Here's where I set the timer in the dialog's OnItit function:

BOOL CMyDialog::OnInitDialog()
 int success;

 global_sent = 0;
 success = SetTimer(3,2000,NULL);

 TRACE("Succes = %d\n", success);

 // TODO: Add extra initialization here

 return TRUE; // return TRUE unless you set the focus to a control
               // EXCEPTION: OCX Property Pages should return FALSE

Here's where I defined the OnTimer function:

void CMyDialog::OnTimer(UINT nIDEVENT)





Thanks for any info.... It seems that it should be so easy...
