Messenger

I look to section samples, and find what this section very small. So I decide make big sample with code from codeguru.
In this sample you can find:
  • How solve "long operation problem"? Simples example you find in file AppIdle.cpp
  • You use Recordset? Is little bit tough, so look to file MailMessage.cpp [LoadDAO, SaverDAO].
  • How make splitters in splitter? Look to MainFrm.cpp [OnCreateClient].
  • Need build version? Look to Messenger.cpp [CAbout::OnInitDialog]
  • Use registry, how demands WinLogo? Look to Messenger.cpp [CMessengerApp::InitInstance]
  • Template window, it is possible? Look to PropDlg.cpp
  • Automatically link with library. Look to file WNetEnum.

    How to use the program
    You need a network to have some use of it.

  • In menu "View" you can see custom checkbox.
  • In menu "Tools\Refresh Network Tree" item enabled only if focus is in the left panel. After pressing that item you fill network tree control [of cause if you computer switched to network].
  • In network tree control you can select computer and send message [write message in the toolbar].
  • In list control press right mouse button and from popup menu delete list items.
  • In "Tools\Properties Dialog" you can change Access DB file place in the disk [In tree: Properties\Program properties\Enter DB file name.
