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

  • In “Tools\Properties Dialog” you can change Access DB file place in the
    disk [In tree: Properties\Program properties\Enter DB file name.
