Using the CLogbook Class

  1. Declare a LOGBOOK_INIT_INFOS structure and initialize it with the InitInfos function.
  2. Declare a LOGBOOK_INIT_FILE_INFOS structure and initialize it with the InitInfos function (only if you want to use a file logbook).
  3. Declare a LOGBOOK_INIT_GUI_INFOS structure and initialize it with the InitInfos function (only if you want to use a GUI logbook).
  4. Call the Initialize function:
    • File parameter can be NULL if no file logbook needed.
    • GUI parameter can be NULL if no GUI logbook needed.
  5. Call AttachFile function to attach a file logbook to base class.
  6. Call AttachGUI function to attach a file logbook to base class.

    Good control. It is what i need.

    Can i disable date/time and text type fields? If i set an empty string to date/time format I see a tabulation in GUI component and date/time (in default format) in log file. If I set an empty string to personal text type I see a tabulation in GUI.
    I don't need these fields now. Can I disable them at all (no tabulation in GUI and in log file)?
