MFCCALC Sample: Demonstrates an Automation Server Application

The MFCCALC sample is an Automation (formerly OLE Automation) server. It implements a simple calculator similar to the CALC application in Windows. It can be driven with Automation with the CALCDRIV sample or run stand alone.

For more information, see the CALCDRIV sample.

Building and Running the Sample

To build and run the MFCCALC sample

  1. Open the solution mfccalc.sln.
  2. On the Build menu, click Build.
  3. Run MFCCALC as a stand-alone application so it can register itself with the system.


This sample demonstrates the following keywords:

AfxGetApp; AfxGetInstanceHandle; AfxGetThread; AfxMessageBox; AfxOleInit; CCmdTarget::EnableAutomation; CDC::DrawIcon; CDC::GetSafeHdc; CDialog::Create; CDialog::DoModal; CDialog::OnCancel; CDialog::OnInitDialog; CDialog::OnOK; CMenu::AppendMenu; CMenu::ModifyMenu; CMenu::RemoveMenu; CRect::Height; CRect::Width; CString::Format; CString::IsEmpty; CString::LoadString; CWinApp::InitInstance; CWinApp::RunAutomated; CWinApp::RunEmbedded; CWnd::DestroyWindow; CWnd::DoDataExchange; CWnd::GetClientRect; CWnd::GetDlgItem; CWnd::GetSafeHwnd; CWnd::GetStyle; CWnd::IsIconic; CWnd::OnPaint; CWnd::OnQueryDragIcon; CWnd::OnSysCommand; CWnd::PostNcDestroy; CWnd::PreTranslateMessage; CWnd::SendMessage; CWnd::SetFocus; CWnd::SetWindowText; CWnd::ShowWindow; GetSystemMenu; GetSystemMetrics; LoadAccelerators; LoadIcon; MAKEINTRESOURCE; SetFocus; TranslateAccelerator

Note   Some samples, such as this one, have not been modified to reflect the changes in the Visual C++ wizards, libraries, and compiler, but still demonstrate how to complete your desired task.
