Internet mail look

.


Having an Internet Mail look can be a bit hard to handle, but it could be quite rewarding .

This MFC42 code shows you how to provide this look in your apps.

.

The trick is to create a splitter window using another's handle. You can add any view you wish depending on the nature of your app. The image above shows a TreeView, RichView, and a FormView.

BOOL CMainFrame::OnCreateClient(LPCREATESTRUCT lpcs, CCreateContext* pContext) 
{
	if(!m_splitterWnd1.CreateStatic(this, 1,2) ||
	   !m_splitterWnd1.CreateView(0, 0, RUNTIME_CLASS(CSplitterView), CSize(100,0), pContext) ||
	   !m_splitterWnd2.CreateStatic(&m_splitterWnd1, 2, 1, WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE, m_splitterWnd1.IdFromRowCol(0,1)) ||
	   !m_splitterWnd2.CreateView(0, 0, RUNTIME_CLASS(CMFormView), CSize(0, 355),pContext) ||
	   !m_splitterWnd2.CreateView(1, 0, RUNTIME_CLASS(CMRichView), CSize(0, 0),pContext))
		{
			return FALSE;
		}		
	return TRUE;
}
