Cookie Viewer/Killer

Environment:VC6 SP5, VC7.NET, WinXP Pro

This dialog-based application first tries to find the path to the user's Cookies folder' if this is successful, an entry is made in the Registry. The path can later be changed by opening the AboutBox and entering the new path. The cookies can be opened by clicking the cookie; also, a search box is provided to find a cookie with text entered in the find cookie box. A keyboard handler has been added so the user can either click the find cookie button or press the enter key. Any other key is passed on to the system. When the Enter key is pressed, it has to be removed from the queue; this is done be replacing it with the Home key. I have included a fair error handler. There is also a Delete current cookie button which prompts the user to confirm deletion. The cookie is then removed from the cookie list and the user's cookie folder.

BOOL CCookieViewerDlg::PreTranslateMessage(MSG* pMsg)
  // TODO: Add your specialized code here and/or call the
  // base class
  if (pMsg->message == WM_KEYDOWN)
    if (pMsg->wParam == VK_RETURN)
      pMsg->wParam = VK_HOME;
  return CDialog::PreTranslateMessage(pMsg);

void CCookieViewerDlg::GetError(LPSTR lpszFunction)
  LPVOID lpMsgBuf;
    (LPTSTR) &lpMsgBuf,
    NULL );
  // Process any inserts in lpszFunction
  // ...
  if (lpszFunction == "")
    lpszFunction = "Error";
  // Display the string.
  ::MessageBox( NULL, (LPCTSTR)lpMsgBuf, lpszFunction,
                MB_OK | MB_ICONINFORMATION );
  // Free the buffer.
  LocalFree( lpMsgBuf );

  • On-demand Event Event Date: November 17, 2015 Although enterprise adoption of open source has accelerated, some are still wary of it. But not all open source technologies are the same: some are designed with enterprises in mind. In this webinar, we'll discuss trends in open source development, innovation impacts, and what it means for the future.

  • Enterprises are increasingly looking to platform as a service (PaaS) to lower their costs and speed their time to market for new applications. Developing, deploying, and managing applications in the cloud eliminates the time and expense of managing a physical infrastructure to support them. PaaS offerings must deliver additional long-term benefits, such as a lower total cost of ownership (TCO), rapid scalability, and ease of integration, all while providing robust security and availability.
