    There is one thing I noticed. It is not a big deal but worth to mention to a developer like you. The placing of ";" and ":" is wrong in the resource Bitmap, that is finally showing wrong character in the display. Did anybody noticed this? or I may be wrong :-)

  • Timer related issues

    I have issues using system timers when I use the CMatrixStatic. I haven't tracked it down yet. (Which is why I checked to see if others have noticed this.) I have a simple dialog that updates controls based on a timer. If I comment out the DDX_ line of code the CMatrix class breaks but the OnTimer() gets called. Swap it and the CMatrixStatic works and the OnTimer() doesn't. I tried not using DoScroll() to avoid using the CMatrixStatis timer functionality--no luck. I have the entire CMatrixStatis working well if I loop updates by hand but not with a timer. On when the CMatrixStatic DDX_ is commented out will the OnTimer events be triggered. (No overlap of the event ID before you ask.)

  • great
