I have started a project for an IDE using MFC Visual Studio Style Project.
I want to change the standar title of the FileView pane.
for this I changed the IDS_FILE_VIEW text.
But the result is not like expected.
On initial startup at top of the pane the new title is displayed correctly, but at button tabs there is still the old name "File View".
And if I switch between the tabs, the old name is displayed on pane's top too. In the whole project I cannot find other locations of the "File View" string, therefore I do not have any idea, how to change the behaviour!
Basically code is from previous project my tutor helped me develop unfortunately I can no longer contact him, but I'm working on similar project which I did a simple object that moves around on screen, I pasted a pre-existing Direct X tool kit that my teacher gave me and imported it in as a project and did the linker with my other project but it's giving me the linker errors. Please kindly fix this there's no coding errors, also if possible please explain with screenshots what was wrong so I would remember for next time, thank you. http://www.megafileupload.com/9c1m/P2BallGamev2.zip
I am starting to create a framework/IDE for special type of project files.
The GUI like Visual Studio would be perfect for my needs and it can be easily created wih assistance from MFC Application Wizard (Options: "MFC" + "Multiple Documents" + "Doc/View Architecture" + "Visual Studio Project Style")
But this solves only the "surface"...internally I need another structure...I have only one document, but I need to create a bunch of views for the document.
In the "File Explorer" view there should be viewed the structure of the document and in the child view area there should be viewed all views (like the "Tabbed Documents"), related to the document.
But I have absolutely no idea, how to solve this!
Are the any examples, I could use as templates? Or are there any general ideas, how to solve?
When you create your project you select a CView derived class for the view of the document. You can add more different views or create some of your own. The MFC templates have a few options if I remembr correctly, and there are samples in the MSDN website and elsewhere[^].
When I create a MDI application, I am able to create several views by default already.
Actually my application should act like an SDI application. One document, on which I have several views. But when selecting SDI style in VS Project Wizard, I do not have this "tabbed document" style, which I would need.
In the case I am using MDI style, my challenge is now, to manipulate the MDI behaviour, that it acts like SDI.
A bit weird, but seems to be the fastest approach.
If this approach is reasonable, I should create a new thread for it in the forum....
