CONTAINER Sample: Visual Editing Container Application

The CONTAINER sample is a simple example of a Visual Editing container application.

CONTAINER illustrates the following:

  • Container starter code created by the application wizard.

  • The application-specific classes CContainerItem and CContainerView and the MFC classes COleClientItem and COleDocument.

  • Selection and hit detection of embedded objects.

  • Activation of embedded objects.

  • Tracker rectangles using the CRectTracker class.

For examples of more advanced Visual Editing container features, see the DRAWCLI and OCLIENT sample applications.
