CHistoryEdit is a CEdit derived control that lets you to display a scrolling text history, much like Dev Studio's "Output" window during a compilation. Here's an example of the control (the "History" window) being used in a dialog box.
Using CHistoryEdit in a dialog is quite simple:
- Include CHistoryEdit.h in your dialog class' header file.
- Add member variables of type CHistoryEdit for every edit control
you want to subclass.
- Subclass the edit controls in your dialog's OnInitDialog() method.
m_HistoryEdit.SubclassDlgItem (EDIT_HISTORY, this);
- Append text to the control by using AppendString().
m_HistoryEdit.AppendString ("Compiling D:\\XDA\\Test\\Mechanic.kb...");
