Display Matrix-like CreditsCMatrixCtrl Control

This is a control that looks a little bit like the credits of the Matrix movie. While it isn't the greatest clone of the Matrix credits, it turned out really well. The control is devired from CWnd.

Here is how you use this class:

  1. Insert the .h and .cpp files into your project.

  2. Create a static control into your dialog resource; it will be the placeholder for the control.

  3. Add a member variable, like this:
  4. CMatrixCtrl m_MatrixCtrl;
  5. In your InitDialog message handler, create the control and place it in the right position:
  6. // determine the rectangle for the control
    CRect rect;
    GetDlgItem(IDC_PLACEHOLDER)  >GetWindowRect(rect);
    ScreenToClient(rect);
    
    m_MatrixCtrl.SetCredits("What is The Matrix?,This is
        The Matrix!,Programmed by,Pablo van der Meer,Pablo
        Software Solutions,http://www.pablovandermeer.nl");
    // create the control
    m_MatrixCtrl.Create(WS_VISIBLE | WS_CHILD, rect, this);

    rather than a character's rain seems to be a character's drizzle. It's a bit slow and with very few characters dropping down..

    Thanks for donating the code. It makes for a nice touch to typically boring things like "about" dialog boxes and any short (2 to 4 line) messages that need to be jazzed up.
