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 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 was done to reduce the footprint of the sample code, making it easier to trace specific portions of the application. The list control, originally in the CMNCTRLS sample, can now be found in the LISTHDR sample.
Building and Running the Sample
To build and run the CMNCTRL2 sample
- Open the solution cmnctrl2.sln.
- On the Build menu, click Build.
- On the Debug menu, click Start Without Debugging.
When you run CMNCTRL2, select the tab for the control you want to activate. Select the styles and views from the check boxes, radio buttons, and combo boxes available in the different property pages. Notice how each option changes the behavior or appearance of the control being displayed.
This sample demonstrates the following keywords:
CBitmap::LoadBitmap; CEdit::Clear; CEdit::GetLineCount; CEdit::LineIndex; CEdit::LineLength; CEdit::ReplaceSel; CEdit::SetSel; CFileDialog::DoModal; CFileDialog::GetPathName; CGdiObject::DeleteObject; CSpinButtonCtrl::GetBuddy; CString::GetBufferSetLength; CString::GetLength; CString::Left; CString::LoadString; CString::ReleaseBuffer; CWinApp::LoadIcon; CWnd::GetClientRect; CWnd::GetWindowRect; CWnd::SetWindowPos; CWnd::SetWindowText; DeleteItem; CWnd::DestroyWindow; CWnd::EnableWindow; GetCursorPos; GetDlgItem; GetParent; GetWindowLong; GetWindowRect; InvalidateRect; LoadIcon; MAKELONG; MessageBeep; ReleaseCapture; ScreenToClient; SetCapture; SetWindowLong; SetWindowPos; UpdateWindow; WindowProc; mbstowcs; rand; srand; time; wsprintf
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.
