Hyperlink and Scroll CStatic Class


Environment: VC6.0 SP5, Windows 2000, STL

For my project, I need a static control with hyperlink and scroll functions. I found the "CHotStatic - hyperlink CStatic" article. However, the static control can only have one hyperlink, and it does not have the scroll function. So, I expanded it. This class (CScrollHotStatic) is derived from CStatic with multi-hyperlink and scroll functions.

You can use it easily. Just follow these steps:

  1. Create a new static control in your resource and add a DDX_Control for it.
  2. Change CStatic to CScrollHotStatic in the header file.
  3. Use the AddText function to add displayed texts. For example:
  4.   m_ctrlHotStatic.AddText
          ("------CScrollHotStaticTestDlg 1.0.0.1------");
      m_ctrlHotStatic.AddText("\tProgram Web Site:");
      m_ctrlHotStatic.AddText("CodeGuru", 
                              "www.codeguru.com", 12);
      m_ctrlHotStatic.AddText("MSDN Web Site", 
                              "msdn.microsoft.com", 12);
      m_ctrlHotStatic.AddText(".......");
      m_ctrlHotStatic.AddText("Mail Web Site:");
      m_ctrlHotStatic.AddText("mail.yahoo.com",
                              "mail.yahoo.com", 12);
      m_ctrlHotStatic.AddText("www.hotmail.com", 
                              "www.hotmail.com", 12);
    

The definition is:

  void AddText(LPCTSTR lpStrText, LPCTSTR lpStrLink=NULL,
    DWORD dwStartXPos=0);
  // lpStrText: The string is displayed in control
  // lpStrLink: The link string for this item
  // dwStartXPos: The horizontal position for this item

  • Due to internal controls and regulations, the amount of long term archival data is increasing every year. Since magnetic tape does not need to be periodically operated or connected to a power source, there will be no data loss because of performance degradation due to the drive actuator. Read this white paper to learn about a series of tests that determined magnetic tape is a reliable long-term storage solution for up to 30 years.
