Application Modernization: What Is It and How to Get Started
There are two main classes
CRTFBuilder responsible for all RTF building
CRichEditCtrlEx, which simply derives from CRichEditCtrl and adds a few methods
RTFBuilder starts off with 1 font and 4 colors:
|black, red, blue, green||turns text to the specified color|
|color||Takes a COLORREF and turns the text that color|
|font||Changes the font. Takes a font name as a string|
|size||Takes an integer as the font size|
|bold(bool)||Turns text bold|
|normal||turns off the above 4 settings|
|push||pushes the current settings on it's own stack|
|pull||pulls the last settings from the stack|
|write||Takes a CRichEditCtrl as a parameter and writes to that control. Can also use the '>>' operator (see example)|
RichEditCtrlEx simply derives fron CRichEditCtrl and adds a few methods
It also overrides PreSubclassWindow to turn the background color to that of the dialog(button) color to give the appearance of a simple lable and sets the control to read only.
The export declarations in the 'RichEd' header make it possible to compile RichEditCtrlEx.cpp in either a library of MFC extension DLL.
The 'RichEd' project is the library and the 'test' project is an example dialog based exe project.
To get going, simply compile and run.
