[docs] [issue21903] ctypes documentation MessageBoxA example produces error

Dan O'Donovan report at bugs.python.org
Wed Jul 2 11:14:49 CEST 2014

New submission from Dan O'Donovan:

There is an example in the ctypes python3 documentation for producing a native Windows MessageBoxA 


Try as I might, I cannot get this example to run under python 3 (it is in the python3 documentation) - it always produces an error

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ctypes.ArgumentError: argument 2: <class 'TypeError'>: wrong type

I apologise for not attaching a fix, I have tried and cannot find one.
