ClassWizard VirtualFilter Options

I came across a problem with the VC++ ClassWizard a while ago. If you have a class derived from a standard MFC class, ClassWizard will offer to insert handlers for virtual function overrides. For example, for a class derived from CPropertyPage, you can add handlers for OnWizardNext, OnWizardFinish and so on. However, if you derive again, e.g.
CPropertyPage
CWizardPage
CWizPage1

Then ClassWizard will show virtual functions for CWizardPage but not for CWizPage1.

I discovered that this can be fixed by editing the ClassWizard *.CLW file and adding the 'VirtualFilter' option to the appropriate section. For example:

[CLS:WizPage1]
Type=0
BaseClass=WizardPage
HeaderFile=WizPage1.h
ImplementationFile=WizPage1.cpp
Filter=N
LastObject=WizPage1
VirtualFilter=idWC

The right hand side of VirtualFilter is a list of case-sensitive letters specifying which sets of virtual functions will be listed by ClassWizard. So, in the above example, ClassWizard will list virtual functions from CPropertyPage, CDialog, CWnd and CCmdTarget.

Here's the full list:

a CDatabase
b CListBox
c CComboBox
d CDialog
e -
f CFrameWnd
g COleMessageFilter
h CDialog
i CPropertyPage
j -
k CHttpServer
l COleClientItem
m -
n CHttpFilter
o OLE stuff
p CSplitterWnd
q CAsyncSocket
r CRecordSet
s COleDropSource
t COleDopTarget
u COleMessageFilter
v COleServerDoc
w COleControl
x CRecordset
y CAsyncMonikerFile
z -

  • With JRebel, developers get to see their code changes immediately, fine-tune their code with incremental changes, debug, explore and deploy their code with ease (both locally and remotely), and ultimately spend more time coding instead of waiting for the dreaded application redeploy to finish. Every time a developer tests a code change it takes minutes to build and deploy the application. JRebel keeps the app server running at all times, so testing is instantaneous and interactive.

  • Instead of only managing projects organizations do need to manage value! "Doing the right things" and "doing things right" are the essential ingredients for successful software and systems delivery. Unfortunately, with distributed delivery spanning multiple disciplines, geographies and time zones, many organizations struggle with teams working in silos, broken lines of communication, lack of collaboration, inadequate traceability, and poor project visibility. This often results in organizations "doing the …
