    I just added:
    pDC->FillSolidRect(rc, pDC->GetBkColor());
    in CTrackLookButton::DrawItem() and it worked well.

    Cool One. Looks very good. The problem of focus as reported already is the only issue.

  • With 2 TrackLookButtons, one of them always has active focus. How can I change that?

    I have two tracklookbuttons, IDC_NEXT and IDC_PREVIOUS in a CFormView. I use the following code to initialize these two push buttons.

    m_previous.LoadBitmaps(IDB_WHITEARROW,IDB_BLUEARROW,IDB_WHITEARROW);
    m_previous.SetTextAlignment(CTrackLookButton::AlignLeft);

    m_next.LoadBitmaps(IDB_WHITEARROW,IDB_BLUEARROW,IDB_WHITEARROW);
    m_next.SetTextAlignment(CTrackLookButton::AlignRight);

    When I compile the program, the m_previous button is activated and the m_next button is not even though the mouse is not even close to either one. Is there any way of changing the code so that neither button is initially active? So that the only way a push button can have focus is when the user moves the mouse over the push button?

    Please, any response you can give me will be greatly appreciated.

    Sincerely,

  • Some minor problems

    First of all, thanks very much for your effort! I think I'm a bit fussy. The following minor problems are only for you to consider, or improve... if you like.

    (1)
    If you click on one of the three bottom buttons, a message box pops up; and you close the message box by clicking on the OK button. You'll see that the button you just clicked on still has the focus, just as the mouse cursor's still in.

    (2)
    If you click on a button, keep the mouse button pressed, and drag the cursor to another button, then the second button is down. This is not the right behavior.

    (3)
    If you cover the dialog box by another application, and uncover it, the button you last clicked on is still up even though the cursor is not in.

    Works great in dialog boxes in CView inhereted classes as follows .

    int CTestView::OnCreate(LPCREATESTRUCT lpCreateStruct)
    {
    CTracklookButton *mybutton;
    mybutton=new CTracklookButton();
    mybutton->Create("NULL",WS_CHILD WS_VISIBLE BS_OWNERDRAW BS_PUSHBUTTON
    ,CRect(x,y,x1,y1),this,IDC_TEST);
    mybutton->LoadBitmaps(IDB_ONE,IDB_TWO,NULL);
    mybutton->SetTextAlignment(CTrackLookButton::AlignBelow);

    }
    note:-
    when used with CFormView inhereted classes or CRecordview
    it fails to Load the bitmaps ;
    note the code will compile with no errors
    tried loading the buttons on the heap and stack with no luck .
    can you please comment.

    keep up the good work

    thanks .

    There is an error in zip file. Since author did not save the path information with the zip, therefore I have to manually move bmp files and other resource files to res directory.

    But the output of the class was impressive.

  • This ESG study by Mark Peters evaluated a common industry-standard disk VTl deduplication system (with 15:1 reduction ratio) versus a tape library with LTO-5, drives with full nightly backups, over a five-year period.  The scenarios included replicated systems and offsite tape vaults.  In all circumstances, the TCO for VTL with deduplication ranged from about 2 to 4 times more expensive than the LTO-5 tape library TCO. The paper shares recent ESG research and lots more.
