hey, i am working on a dialog based mfc app, and am starting to get into graphics for the first time. I have never used them, and can not find any good tutorials around. Here is what i have done so far and what i think i need to do.
I have made a picture control, assigned it a member variable and all. I imagine i will have to somehow iniatiate a image object, assign it to the control, then i will have to draw it into the box. But how?
And i am going to add a twist or 2 to it.
The filename is going to come from an editbox elsewhere on the dialog. I can't imagine this will be hard to do, just open up a variable name, not a hard coded name, but it means the image will have to be somehow dynamic. Will this be different for me?
And finally, i will be wanting to do more then bitmaps. JPegs and Gifs are all in my sights. I understand that by default, mfc only supports bitmaps, but have been looking around the net and found a good msdn article that claims to take all the trouble out of using different formats. However, again with my lack of graphics knowledge, i still feel lost.
I am using c++ to do this (in case you did not know by now, ms vc6.0) . Any help anyone can give me would be GREAT. thanks again.
