Editable Labels

Download Source Code


LabelEdit and LabelComboBox are controls which looks like a CStatic, but when the user clicks on the control, an edit control or combobox appears which allows the user write (select) new value.

Steps:

  1. In Resource Designer, put one or more custom controls. In the "Class" edit box in the "Properties" dialog for the custom control, specify "TLabelEdit" (no quotes).
  2. In InitInstance of the main application, you must call CTLabelEdit::RegClassLabelEdit() in order to register the window class TLabelEdit.
  3. Declare in Dialog or CFormView a member of the type which you want to use: CTLabelEdit or CTLabelComboBox
  4. In InitDialog (or OnInitalUpdate) you must subclass custom controls with the new members added in step 3.
  5. For controls of type CTLabelComboBox there must be an existing combobox control which the CTLabelComboBox will be attached. In step 4 you must attach the combobox to the custom control with the function CTLabelList::Attach(...).

This custom controls can be extended to use listbox, etc.
