CWinFormsControl::CreateManagedControl 

Creates a Windows Forms control in an MFC container.


inline BOOL CreateManagedControl(
   System::Type^ pType,
   DWORD dwStyle,
   const RECT& rect,
   CWnd* pParentWnd,
   int nID
)
inline BOOL CreateManagedControl(
   DWORD dwStyle,
   const RECT& rect,
   CWnd* pParentWnd,
   int nID
);
inline BOOL CreateManagedControl(
   DWORD dwStyle,
   int nPlaceHolderID,
   CWnd* pParentWnd
);
inline BOOL CreateManagedControl(
   typename TManagedControl^ pControl,
   DWORD dwStyle,
   const RECT& rect,
   CWnd* pParentWnd,
   int nID
);

Parameters

pType

The data type of the control to be created. Must be a System.Type data type.

dwStyle

The window style to apply to the control. Specify a combination of Window Styles. Currently, only the following styles are supported: WS_TABSTOP, WS_VISIBLE, WS_DISABLED and WS_GROUP.

rect

A RECT Structure that defines the coordinates of the upper-left and lower-right corners of the control (first overload only).

nPlaceHolderID

The handle of the static place holder control placed in the Resource Editor. The newly created Windows Forms control replaces the static control, assuming its position, z-order, and styles (second overload only).

pParentWnd

A pointer to the parent window.

nID

The resource ID number to be assigned to the newly created control.

pControl

An instance of a Windows Forms control to be associated with the CWinFormsControl Class object (fourth overload only).

If successful, returns a nonzero value. If unsuccessful, returns zero.

This method instantiates a .NET Framework Windows Forms control in an MFC container.

The first overload of the method accepts a .NET Frameworks data type pType so that MFC can instantiate a new object of this type. pType must be a System.Type data type.

The second overload of the method creates a Windows Forms control based on the TManagedControl template parameter of the CWinFormsControl class. The size and position of the control is based on the RECT structure passed to the method. Only dwStyle matters for the styles.

The third overload of the method creates a Windows Forms control that replaces a static control, destroying it and assuming its position, z-order, and styles. The static control serves only as a placeholder for the Windows Forms control. When creating the control, this overload combines the styles from dwStyle with the static control's resource styles.

The fourth overload of the method allows you to pass in an already instantiated Windows Forms control pControl that MFC will wrap. It must be of the same type as the TManagedControl template parameter of the CWinFormsControl class.

See Using a Windows Form User Control in MFC for samples on using Windows Form controls.
