CMNCTRL2 Sample: Demonstrates Common Control MFC Classes, Part 2
The CMNCTRL2 sample illustrates how to use the following common control MFC classes: CProgressCtrl, CSliderCtrl, and CSpinButtonCtrl. It shows how the controls are created and how to change the controls by using many of the different available styles.
CMNCTRL2 is the result of replacing the original CMNCTRLS sample with two smaller projects: CMNCTRL1 (tree, toolbar, date and time picker, month calendar, and animate controls) and CMNCTRL2 (progress, up/down, and slider controls). This design reduces the footprint of the sample code, which makes it easier to trace specific portions of the application.
This sample may not exactly demonstrate some features of the Visual C++ wizards, libraries, and compiler, but it still shows how to complete the intended task.
This sample code is intended to illustrate a concept, and it shows only the code that is relevant to that concept. It may not meet the security requirements for a specific environment, and it should not be used exactly as shown. We recommend that you add security and error-handling code to make your projects more secure and robust. Microsoft provides this sample code "AS IS" with no warranties.
