CGDI - Simple GDI Set And Reset

In MFC, GDI Objects need to be selected and then destroyed. CGDI and its derived classes take care of this by selecting the object in the constructor and deselecting it in the destructor. CGDIObject is a template class which takes as its parameter the CGdiObject-derived class. This class library only accounts for a few of the set/get function pairs. This could be extended by creating classes for each of the CDC Set/Get functions. Examples:

// Example to draw a line using the BLACK_PEN stock object
void DrawLine(CDC* pDC)
{
    CStockObject theObject(pDC, BLACK_PEN);

    pDC->LineTo(100, 100);
}

// Example to draw a line using a custom pen
void DrawLinesWithPen(CDC* pDC)
{                                                         // Current Pen Selected
    CPen thePen(PS_SOLID, 3, RGB(100, 200, 2));

    CGDIObject<CPen> theObject(pDC, &thePen);                  // thePen Selected

    pDC->LineTo(100, 100);

    // Use brackets to nest calls
    {
        CPen theOtherPen(PS_SOLID, 3, RGB(200, 10, 2));         

        CGDIObject<CPen> theOtherObject(pDC, &theOtherPen);    // theOtherPen Selected

        pDC->LineTo(200, 200);
    }                                                     // thePen Selected

    pDC->LineTo(300, 300);
}                                                         // Current Pen Selected

  • Enterprises today must focus on digital transformation to remain competitive or disrupt their industries. The foundation for successful transformation is the adoption of a cloud-first mindset. However, IT organizations must first address legacy infrastructure and fragmented management tools that were not designed for the speed and flexibility of the cloud and digital era. Read this IDC Technology Spotlight paper to explore: Why digital transformation is driving a shift to a cloud-centric enterprise Key …

  • For many organizations, moving enterprise applications to the public cloud can be a very attractive proposition, but planning the best way to move your applications is mission–critical. As an alternative to the costly option of re–architecting the application for a cloud environment, you can follow a "lift and shift" model that's significantly cheaper and almost always a lot quicker. In order to have a successful "lift and shift" migration, read this white paper to learn a few rules you should …
