Message with MFC in custom class #2


How can I catch messages in an other class than the view? I have a
MFC-SDI-Application which draws with OpenGL.
I'd like to have a class, which handels the keyboard input, and another
which handels the OpenGL drawing. Can i derive the new class from
CCmdTarget? Does that work, and how would an example look like?

Thank you

Deriving from CCmdTarget is necessary but not sufficient to make a class 
capable of receiving messages.  Messages are sent only to windows, and 
CCmdTarget is the window's message routing code.  But it has to be 
associated with a window.  (Except MFC creates an exception by rerouting 
WM_COMMAND to CDocuments.)

The neatest solution to doing what you want is to consider the view 
class to be a message routing class (because that's where the messages 
come in).  In turn, the view could contain members that it calls for 
keys and for drawing.

If you have to do something else (I don't know what constraints OpenGL 
creates) you could look into catching all keys in

VBA Customization History
Hi, Please let me know if there a way we can determine the customized VBA package import history in GP 10. Regards Sandeep, Not sure what you mean by "customized VBA package import history". However, this is what I interpret from your post: if you are looking to maintain a history of the changes done for a particular VBA customization, you may setup a project in say Visual SourceSafe and export a package file with the customization. You may version each file in Visual SourceSafe and add information as to the last time it was imported into GP. Best regards, -...

Tasks, calendar and e-mail on the same window #2

messages on server
Where can I find a good explanation of "leaving messages on the server"? How do I access them? How do they show up on my outlook? how do I delete them?

Using files from lotus 1-2-3
I am using Office 2003 with Microsoft XP Home Edition. I open files previously saved in Lotus 1-2-3 as *.XLS.
