Security noteSecurity Note

This sample code is provided to illustrate a concept and should not be used in applications or Web sites, as it may not illustrate the safest coding practices. Microsoft assumes no liability for incidental or consequential damages should the sample code be used for purposes other than as intended.

Building and Running the Sample

To build and run the WORDPAD sample

  1. Open the solution wordpad.sln.

  2. On the Build menu, click Build.

  3. Run WordPad as a stand-alone application so it can register itself with the system.

WORDPAD Features

The SUPERPAD sample illustrates a basic word processor based on the CEditView class. In contrast, WORDPAD is based on the CRichEditView, CRichEditDoc, and CRichEditCntrItem classes, and — besides supporting the features that SUPERPAD supports — also demonstrates the following features.

  • The ability to read, write, and convert between multiple file formats, including the Word file format, .rtf (Rich Text Format) format, and ASCII text format.

  • Text formatting, including the use of fonts, character formatting (bold, italics, underlining), color, and point sizes. These attributes are available in a formatting toolbar.

  • Per-paragraph formatting, including alignment (left, center, or right), tabs, margins, and first-line indentation. These attributes are also available in a ruler toolbar.

  • Undo support.

  • ActiveX component support, both container and server.
