    file editor sample

    Hi, I got this program called file editor example. Written in C. It just opens a text file, it can save it, you can write in it and exit thats it.

    How would I add to this, I wanted to try and make a spreadsheet with it, is this possible. I dont want the code to do that, just want to know if I would add another page to the dev file and under what name, and do I need to mention it in the other files? This is the code from main.c Thanks for any help.


    Code:
    #include <windows.h>
    
    # include <stdio.h>
    
    #include "Main.h"
    
    static char g_szClassName[] = "MyWindowClass";
    static HINSTANCE g_hInst = NULL;
    
    #define IDC_MAIN_TEXT   1001
    
    BOOL LoadFile(HWND hEdit, LPSTR pszFileName)
    {
       HANDLE hFile;
       BOOL bSuccess = FALSE;
    
       hFile = CreateFile(pszFileName, GENERIC_READ, FILE_SHARE_READ, NULL,
          OPEN_EXISTING, 0, 0);
       if(hFile != INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE)
       {
          DWORD dwFileSize;
          dwFileSize = GetFileSize(hFile, NULL);
          if(dwFileSize != 0xFFFFFFFF)
          {
             LPSTR pszFileText;
             pszFileText = (LPSTR)GlobalAlloc(GPTR, dwFileSize + 1);
             if(pszFileText != NULL)
             {
                DWORD dwRead;
                if(ReadFile(hFile, pszFileText, dwFileSize, &dwRead, NULL))
                {
                   pszFileText[dwFileSize] = 0; // Null terminator
                   if(SetWindowText(hEdit, pszFileText))
                      bSuccess = TRUE; // It worked!
                }
                GlobalFree(pszFileText);
             }

          dwTextLength = GetWindowTextLength(hEdit);
          if(dwTextLength > 0)// No need to bother if there's no text.

             LPSTR pszText;

    Moved to windows board, since it's a win32 API question.

    Turning this into a spreadsheet would not be a trivial matter. As it is now, all the program does is create a window, and place an EDIT control on it. There is no standard spreadsheet control, so you would have to make one from scratch, find one on the internet, or find a spreadsheet ActiveX control, and use that. Needless to say, if you turn this into a spreadsheet, the Save and Load functions would have to be rewritten.

    Well the whole point of doing this is to learn. But I'm new at this. So It would have to be as simple as possible. No options like you get with excel. Just input area display indented perfectly, save option and print.

    Just needed to know if I was on a wild goose chase or anything and to know how to go about intergrating it with this source code. Or make my own file open save thingy.

    Well creating a spreadsheet is a lot more complicated than you probably think it should be. That is why using the ActiveX control is the best way of doing it. If you have MS Office installed, then you have the Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet ActiveX control installed. This will allow you to place Excel spreadsheets on your own windows.

    If your only goal is to learn, then I suggest you start with an easier project than creating a spreadsheet. Maybe modify the source code so you can add more functionality to the text editor. You can add a search, or a replace option. Something like that.
