Open and close Dialog windows
I've got a dialog based application which performs a long lasting task
for which the user has to wait.
I would like to show the user a message that something is happening
and I would like to close the message automatically when the task is
Because I've little experience with mfc I would like to ask how I can
manage this and if there is an example for doing it ?
Is there a faq for this group ?

...Some advice creating a graph class
I am developing a program to draw a graph of database data using the OnPaint
function in the View class.
In the CView class I am grabbing the device context and then passing it to a
function where I draw the actual graph by creating pens & brushes and using
moveto/lineto functions etc.
CPaintDC dc(this); // device context for painting
This is working well but becoming quite large as a function and would think
it is time to create a class to encapsulate the graph function.
This seemed pretty straight forward until I started and realized it&...object or class does not support the set of events 03-16-07

Searching around I've seen many mentions of this rude dialog box, which

pertained more to discovering why they were seeing the box in the first

to see it again.

Your b...CRecordSet read-only error in dialog-based app
I have an application that reads and writes to an Access DB using ODBC. The
app was originally built as a Doc/View, but I recently converted it to a
dialog-based app. Previously, reads/writes to a recordset worked fine (the
recordset was set to snapshot). After the conversion to dialog-based, I began
receiving a read-only error. First I tried changing to dynaset. That stopped
the read-only problem, but caused an access violation in one of the multiple
calls to DoFieldExchange() in CRecordSet::Update() ).
The documentation says that a snapshot can be updatable as well as read-only.

Do you draw the image in the OnPaint handler, or use an SS_BITMAP style-static and do a
SetBitmap (this causes the built-in OnPaint handler to paint the image). Any other
solution will not work.
