A sample that can load, display, and print graphics files.



This sample is an MFC application using the document/view architecture that can load, display and print graphics files such as GIF, JPEG, BMP (bitmap), ICO (icon), WMF (metafile) and EMF (Win32-enhanced metafile). It shows

  • how to use the OleLoadPicturePath() function and the IPicture interface to load and display those graphics files.

  • (Look into the ImgViewerDoc.cpp, ImgViewerView.cpp and MainFrm.cpp files.)
  • how to support more than one file extension per MFC document type.

  • (Look into the MulExtDocTmp.cpp, MulExtDocTmp.h and ImgViewer.cpp files.)


Please see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

Q218972 How To Load and Display Graphics Files w/LOADPIC.EXE
(Note that LOADPIC.EXE does not handle palettes. As a result, it won't display a 256-color image correctly in 256-color mode. Also, it uses the OleLoadPicture() function instead of the OleLoadPicturePath() function.)

Someone with taste!

Opus 35 is a nice Sonata from Chopin, but SO long! If you're playing it, congrats!
Oh, and Opus 35 has 4 nice movements, don't stick to the Marche Funèbre, the other 3 movements are much more beautiful.

But the code could add something new...
