    Add ON_COMMAND menu button handler

    Hi,

    In VC6 (MFC - SDI - CFormView)... to add a menu button handler:

    open class wizard
    click on the ID_BUTTON_NAME
    click on COMMAND
    click "add function"
    click "edit code"

    In VC7.net (MFC - SDI - CFormView)...
    How do i do the same task, or do i have to add the command handler code manually??

    Please please someone help.... its driving me nuts!

    Right-click the control (button, etc) you want and select the option to add an event handler.

    Its the toolbar buttons resource.

    If i right-click on them, a menu appears with lots of options for drawing buttons, but no "event handler"

    Add these lines to the class interface and implementation files.

    afx void OnMenu(CCmdUI *pCmdUI)
    ON_COMMAND(ID_MENU, OnMenu)

    Thumbs down

    Yeah, i've written the handlers and message mapping manually now, but isn't the idea of a CAD to make life simplier?

    What the hell were MS thinking of? This is stupid and rediculous.

    In a previous version, it was simple, in a newer version, its impossible...

    Don't figure!

    hahahahah

    Remember Microsoft is pushing C#. As far I as I see, Microsoft is not longer improving MFC.

    well, i cant be dealing with this!

    As soon as i find a way to use the nice looking XP style buttons that .net produces, so i can just apply them to my exsisting VC6 projects without changing the code, .net is going on ebay!

    I know there are 3rd party companies out there that sell these, but i've paid for .net, so i'll wait until someone figures out how to do it.

    It cant be anything more complex than copying over the libaries, but i dont know enough about the software to do that!


    Cheers,

    joe
