    displaying text in a MFC AppWizard window

    hello, i created a MFC app with the AppWizard in VC++ 6, it has multiple documents... but they didnt have an example of how to put text into their mutiple ducument windows... so im lost on how to do this, im assuming its somhing like DrawText(...); but i dunno where to put it =/

    so im wondering where i could find a MFC tutorial dealing with the multiple document app created by the MFC Appwizard, all the MFC tuts i have found have nothing to do with multiple documents/the App wizard generated projects...

    Look up TextOut(). It should be a method on the CDC. At least it's an API you can call in Win32

    i looked it up, and understand it, but im not see'n where in the source to call it to print it to the screen, whether it be the main frame, or child window.

    I don't remeber exactly. I think you need to create an event called OnDraw, Draw , Onpaint or something like that. Everything that goes to the screen should be done in that function

    On your MDI App you will have a "View" class......use that to draw on screen ala

    Code:
    void CTestMFC2View::OnPaint() 
    {
    	CPaintDC dc(this); // device context for painting
    	CRect rect;
    	GetClientRect(&rect);
    	dc.DrawText(_T("The most simple MFC App ever!"),
    		-1,rect,DT_CENTER | DT_VCENTER | DT_SINGLELINE);
    }
