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




// helper template function for unused parameters

void Unused(T rT)

    static_cast<void>(rT);
