Magnifying Glass - demonstrates different ways to obtain or create proper DC and use BitBlt - StretchBlt functions

Environment:VC5/VC6

Generally the sample demonstrates different ways to obtain or create proper DC and use BitBlt - StretchBlt functions.

It is another ZoomIn demo application created with doc-view architecture. CView derived class experienced minimum changes from AppWizard generated one.

CImageWnd window covers CView derived class window. CImageWnd contains a copy (mirror) of CView derived class window bitmap to draw. CImageWnd window becomes transparent when magnifying glass is inactive and draws a "lens" over the bitmap when active. The "lens" is a small zoom window. Magnifying Glass doesn't depend on a view contents. It is easy to modify CMgnView::OnDraw or CMgnView::OnEraseBkgnd and Magnifying Glass still will work with another contents.

To activate or deactivate magnifying glass - press button on a toolbar.

To magnify a portion of a view - activate magnifying glass, press left mouse button and move "lens" around a view.

To change magnifying glass size, shape or zoom - activate magnifying and click a view with right mouse button. It is possible to create several views just use file - new command. Note that for each view magnify glass keeps its own properties.

It is easy enough to make a "lens" astigmatic (cylinder) or add another "optical effects".

I couldn't remove some "optical side effects". When magnifying glass is slowly moved from outside a frame inside it over a border you see a "diffraction grid".

  • This ESG study by Mark Peters evaluated a common industry-standard disk VTl deduplication system (with 15:1 reduction ratio) versus a tape library with LTO-5, drives with full nightly backups, over a five-year period.  The scenarios included replicated systems and offsite tape vaults.  In all circumstances, the TCO for VTL with deduplication ranged from about 2 to 4 times more expensive than the LTO-5 tape library TCO. The paper shares recent ESG research and lots more.
