Job Savers Control Panel AppWizard

The control panel wizard is one of my finest wizards, it generates a control panel of either a standard dialog, or a new win95 tabbed dialog.

Instructions

This Control Panel wizard is pretty simple to use, you only have to privide:
  • Name - Which should be unique, and not include spaces.
  • Description - The string that you see on the status bar of the main control panel window, when the mouse is on your control panel icon.
  • Comments - You have to decide what level of source code comments you want.
  • Style - You have to decide if you want 31 support (standard dialog), or can live with 95/NT only (tabbed dialog).
When picking style, you are presented with the following options:
Standard Dialog This makes a normal dialog control panel, which will work under windows 3.1 and above. You will be prompted for the number of panels. This sometimes confuses people, but the deal is that one control panel DLL can easily house more then one control panel, for each panel an icon, and a callback routine is defined, and the control panel manager will query your dll for each panel it holds. My wizard will only do multiple control panels in one dll if you select the standard dialog option.
Tabbed Dialog This makes a tabbed dialog, which works under windows 95 and above. You will be prompted for the number of tabs you want on this dialog.


This appwizard generates control panel dll's, a control panel DLL must be named .cpl for windows to realize its a control panel dll, and thus, you will find your newly generated control panel project generates a file called bob.cpl (your control panel) After you compile your new control panel, you will need to copy it to the windows/system or windows/system32 directory.

Install/Uninstall

To install any wizard, you must simply copy the wizard (any .awx file) it to your devstudio/sharedide/template directory.
Conversly, to remove a wizard, simply deleting the .awx file from your template directory while DevStudio isnt running will do it.

    Hi,

    I downloaded your three wizards in order to learn from the source code to make my own wizards for my own needs. However, I found out that the code is not there. Actually, the code is all what I was interested in not the topics themselves, so why isn't the code included like other CodeGuru's samples.

    If you can add the source code or send it to me via e-mail it would be of great help.

    Thanks a lot,
    Victor Boctor.
