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

ImgViewer

Introduction

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.)

Thanks, I've tried.
 
The bad news is it only views the first page ... no sign of the rest.
 
The good news is that I found this other piece of software that does the job perfectly:

thanks for you time,
Loris
 
PS why do you write "Download source" when there also is the compiled exe version? Wouldn't "Download source and binary" be better?
