CPicture - The Yovav (Horror) PictureShow

[CPictureShow.jpg]

After many days of searching (and not finding) a way to load a JPG from a resource and show it on a *dialog based* application, I decided to take steps.

I created what I call a very *simple* and useful class. It can easily be implemented by adding it to a project. You don't have to be a real JPEG freak and invent all the header reading from the beginning (It uses the IPicture interface jst as Internet Explorer does)

About The Project

I Was a little carried away with this "ACDSee Alike" picture viewer. As it was not my main purpose - I didn't have the time to make it "Perfect". If you feel lucky and want to improve it here and there - please share it.

//~~~~~~~~~Example & Usage 4 Dummies~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
//
//  U Need 2 Add "CPicture.CPP" and "CPicture.H" Into 
//  Your Project (From FileView) So U Will Get Control 
//  Over The Functions In This Class, Then U Can Create 
//  a Picture Object And Show It On a Device Context
//
//  CPicture m_Picture;  // Create a Picture Object 
//                       //    (An Instance Of This Class)
//  #include "Picture.h" // Make Sure U Include This 
//                       //     Where U Gonna Create The Object...
//
//  Load Picture Data Into The IPicture Interface (.BMP 
//                         .DIB .EMF .GIF .ICO .JPG .WMF)
//  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
//  m_Picture.Load("Test.JPG"); // Load From a File - 
//                              //   Just Load It (Show Later)
//  m_Picture.Load(IDR_TEST, "JPG"); // Load From a Resource 
//                                   //- Just Load It (Show Later)
//  (U Must Include IDR_TEST In Your Resources Under a Custom 
//        Name, 4 Example - "JPG")
//  
//  When Using DC Object On a *Dialog Based* Application 
//                                     (CPaintDC dc(this);)
//  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
//  m_Picture.UpdateSizeOnDC(&dc); // Get Picture Dimentions
//                                     //  In Pixels
//  m_Picture.Show(&dc,
//                 CPoint(0,0), 
//                 CPoint(m_Picture.m_Width, m_Picture.m_Height),
//                 0,0);
//  // Change Original Dimentions:
//  m_Picture.Show(&dc, CRect(0,0,100,100)); 
//  // Show Bitmap Resource:
//  m_Picture.ShowBitmapResource(&dc, IDB_TEST, CPoint(0,0));
//
//  OR When Using a Pointer On a "Regular" MFC Application (CDC* pDC)
//  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

//                 0,0);
//  // Change Original Dimentions:
//  m_Picture.Show(pDC, CRect(0,0,100,100));
//  // Show Bitmap Resource:
//  m_Picture.ShowBitmapResource(pDC, IDB_TEST, CPoint(0,0));
//
//  Show Picture Information
//  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
//  CString S;
//  S.Format("Size = %4d\nWidth = %4d\nHeight = %4d\nWeight = %4d\n",
//           m_Picture.m_Weight,
