Can I control linked cell property value in a copied ActiveX contr
I need to copy an ActiveX control approximately 200 times in 1 worksheet (not
form). The LinkedCell property value does not change when I copy and paste -
so I end up with 200 controls pointing to the same cell. This is a pain to

I'm writing a MDI application. Child window is splitted in three panes. In
the one pane I've got a FormView with some buttons. How to do, that this

...Controlling display names
I'll try asking this again a different way:
Is there a way to have a display name for Exchange 2003 in the global

the organization, we just want email to come from John in the email header:
From: "John" <firstname.lastname@example.org>
This problem is all about the display name, nothing to do with the actual

I am using OpenGL in my MFC app. The problem is when I resize the
window from the left or top border the whole scene of my OpenGL moves
even before my OnPaint event handler is called and when my OnPaint is
called after this it repaints the scene so this produces a flicker. If,
however I resize the window from the right or bottom border this
problem doen't occur. Can anybody please tell me what is happening?

Hi, does anybody know any windows control that can

Every process can have only one Console window. So, you'd almost never find
a control having its own Console window. However if your Application does
an "AllocConsole" you can get your own Console window and any Control that
you write can do IO through this console window; but be aware that mixing UI
with console is considered ugly.

I want to use dot-matrix printer to print data one line each times.
Does anyone know any reference about it? Any comment is welcome.
Thanks in advanced.
In the general case, you can simply print to the Windows device context for
any printer supported by Windows and it should work. Did you try this? What
is wrong with it?
If you need to programmatically control a specific printer--I can't image
why you'd need to do this--you need to get a reference for *that* printer so
you know which codes have what affect.

You can resize a window by using the SetWindowPos or MoveWindow APIs.

In a project developped with Visual Cpp version 5 & 6, it's the last control

One way is to use a "named range".

You can handle the message WM_SIZE of dialog to change
the size of CTreeCtrl. Use message mapping.
Then call the MoveWindow function to change the size:

I have successfully created an ActiveX control (using MFC COleControl)
that is based on (subclasses) the list-view control (SysListView32).
The control appears, and in report mode, it successfully displays the
columns I have added to it -- InsertColumn (LVM_INSERTCOLUMN) succeeds.
A call to DeleteAllItems (LVM_DELETEALLITEMS message) succeeds (but
there are no items yet).
However, when I call InsertItem (LVM_INSERTITEM) with a valid LVITEM
structure being passed, it returns -1! Also, the portion of the control
where items would appear is not colored white, as I would expect.

Can I design a Dialog that automatically resizes all controls when the
Dialog is being resized?
Yes. You can resize or move them as you wish by handling OnSize of the
dialog. SetWindowPos can be used to change the size and/or position.
Here is a helpful link:
No. You must explicitly take action on the OnSize handler to resize them. Sometimes,
there are packages called "geometry managers" that make this fairly straightforward (check
