Extended Use of CStatic Class

CLabel image Download Source Code and Example

Every wanted a static control that behaved like a Visual Basic(yuk!) label control? Well this could be just the thing you might be looking for. The first cut version of this MFC extension class will allow you to change the text, font attributes (weight, underline, size, name), text color, background color and border style.

I've called the simple class CLabel and is simple to use in dialog boxes, just follow this simple instructions.

  1. Design the dialog box in the normal why.
  2. Create a OnInitDialog function using the class wizard.
  3. Add Label.cpp and Label.h to your project.
  4. #Include <label.h> in your dialog .cpp file.
  5. Any static controls that need enhancing, give each control a unique ID.
  6. Assign a member control (CLabel) to each ID using the class wizard.
  7. In OnInitDialog change a static controls appearing the functions provided. (See Label.h)

    Just a minor comment, when creating CLabel objects in your initdialog() function like

    CLabel* pLabel = new CLabel;

    you have to blank out the RedrawWindow function in the Label.ccp code...

  • Its nice
