ATL Coding Helpers

Here I put a collection of helper and workaround classes/macros I developed through my
experience with ATL and popularized at our site. I guess it might be useful to others.

I don’t pretend to be original or smartest and apologize if similar ideas or code were
already appeared anywhere.

What’s included:

  • Yet another smart pointer class that frees your from using IID_*.
  • Seamless error handling, no more tiresome branches over right screen side!
  • Easy dynamic creation of ATL-based objects, allows to overcome an unavailability of
    default constructor like in case p = new CComObject<CMyClass>.
  • Windows.x message crackers at CWindowImpl msg map.
  • Simple and efficient way to build multiple dispinterface event sinks at single object.
  • CComEnum enhanced with bug fixed.
  • Automatic handling of critical section lock.
  • Many other useful helpers.
