Pager Control

The class CCJPagerCtrl is fairly simple to use. It can be used in either a dialog or view. For demo purposes, I implemented it in a dialog using a CToolBar, but you can use any control or view class as the child window. Open your dialog in your resource editor and add a custom control. Modify the properties of the control as shown below:

In the OnInitDialog() section, add the following code:

// TODO: Add extra initialization here
if (!m_wndToolBar.Create(&m_Pager) ||
	!m_wndToolBar.LoadToolBar(IDR_MAINFRAME))
{
	TRACE0("Failed to create toolbar\n");
	return -1;      // fail to create
}

// Make the toolbar flat.
m_wndToolBar.ModifyStyle(0, 0x0800);

// Set the child HWND.
m_Pager.SetChild(m_wndToolBar.m_hWnd);

// Set the pager style to PGS_HORZ.
m_Pager.ModifyStyle(0,PGS_HORZ);

// Set the button size to 15.
m_Pager.SetButtonSize(15);

// Determine size of child
SIZE Size;
m_wndToolBar.SendMessage(TB_GETMAXSIZE,0,(LPARAM)&Size);

// Set the scroll area for pager.
m_Pager.SetScrollArea(Size.cx+15, Size.cy+15);

NOTE:
If you are using Visual C++ 5, you will need to include the support file comm_control.h in your project, unless you have installed the SDK, in which case you won't need this. If you have any questions, feel free to drop me a line.

    Why are always the iDir (scroll direction) and iScroll (scroll delta) members of the NMPGSCROLL structure empty ?

    Is it a bug of the pager common control (note: it makes no difference if you use ComCtl32.dll version 4.72 or 5.80) ?
