CWnd::GetDSCCursor

Call this member function to retrieve a pointer to the underlying cursor that is defined by the DataSource, UserName, Password, and SQL properties of the data-source control.

IUnknown * GetDSCCursor( );

Return Value

A pointer to a cursor that is defined by a data-source control. MFC takes care of calling AddRef for the pointer.

Remarks

Use the returned pointer to set the ICursor property of a complex data-bound control, such as the data-bound grid control. A data-source control will not become active until the first bound control requests its cursor. This can happen either explicitly by a call to GetDSCCursor or implicitly by the MFC binding manager. In either case, you can force a data-source control to become active by calling GetDSCCursor and then calling Release on the returned pointer to IUnknown. Activation will cause the data-source control to attempt to connect to the underlying data source. The returned pointer might be used in the following context:

Example

BOOL CMyDlg::OnInitDialog()
{
   // Find the child controls on the dialog
   CWnd* pDSC = GetDlgItem(IDC_REMOTEDATACONTROL);
   CDBListBox* pList = (CDBListBox*)
   GetDlgItem(IDC_DBLISTBOX);

   // Tell the MFC binding manager that we are
   // binding DISPID 3 to the data-source control.
   pList->BindProperty(0x3, pDSC);

   // Tell the listbox which field to expose as its
   // bound column
   pList->SetBoundColumn(_T("CourseID"));

   // Tell the listbox which cursor and column
   // to populate its list from
   pList->SetListField(_T("CourseID"));
   IPUNKNOWN *pcursor = pDSC->GetDSCCursor();
   ...
   if (!pcursor)
   {
   // The pointer was not successfully assigned.
      return FALSE;
   }
   // The pointer was successfully assigned,
   pList->SetRowSource(pcursor);
   ...
   pcursor->Release();
   return TRUE;
}
