IPicture: problem with transparent
I have a Win32 project that uses the IPicture class.
Here is how I load the picture:
OleLoadPicturePath (path, 0, 0, 0x00ffffff, IID_IPicture, (LPVOID *) &pic);
everything is fine accept this:
the 4th parameter in that function is the color that should be transparent
when rendering but it doesn't work. I have a totally white picture and still
it draws it.
I read in MSDN that only Metafiles and icons can be transparent but even
when i made an icon picture it still wasn't transparent. I also confirmed
that the picture had the transparent attribute using pic->Get_Attribu...Maximum practical Outlook 2007 .pst file size
I would like to ask basically the same question as recent post except I am
curious more about 2007. I too have seen pc's drag down with larger pst
files. The user I have currently has 8Gb in a single local pst file and the
pc is unreasonably slow. It's a very new machine so it shouldn't be
cluttered up with other stuff... But acting slower that slower pcs.
see that previous post since i cover stuff for outlook 2003/7.

I was wondering if there is a way to set up a hyperlink
that when clicked sends the workbook as an attachment to
the person specified by the hyperlink??
A hyperlink can't do this as far as I know
But you can use a macro that will send it

If ActiveCell.Value Like "*@*" Then

Never open it in the mail.
Maybe they send a link to the file to you instead of the file ?

Hi. Our site has recently upgraded to using Office 2003 on Windows XP and
we connect to Exchange 2003. I have run into a couple of instances where
the Outlook client will not connect to the Exchange server and Outlook

profile related and not a DNS error.

Consider a working thread, periodically posting WM messages to GUI thread so
the event handler CMyDialog:OmMyMsg is called.
When I show another dialogs form CMyDialog:OmMyMsg() , and pass them "this"
as a parent, MFC calls CMyDialog:OmMyMsg() again and again because there are
more messages waiting (and the working thread posting them again and again).
Now we throw away these messages with static guard but what we really want
is the messages to wait in a queue _as if_ those another dialogs were shown
from another thread.
What are the possible solutions for the problem?

Is there any particular reason why the synchronisation between OST and
