A Static control with a gradient

Sample Image - gradientstatic.jpg


The idea was to have a small piece of code which makes it easy to create a gradient control. I saw a lot of great code, but it was not exactly what I want.  So I decided to create my own CGradientStatic-class.

Usage of CGradientStatic

To use this control in your application:

  • Design the dialog and add the Static control
  • Add the GradientStatic.h header file to your project
  • Assign a CGradientStatic to your static control.
  • In OnInitDialog(), subclass CGradientStatic control to ID using the SubclassWindow method.
#include <span class="code-string">"CGradientStatic.h"


class CMainDlg : public CDialogImpl<CMainDlg>
       MESSAGE_HANDLER(WM_INITDIALOG, OnInitDialog)          
    LRESULT OnInitDialog(UINT /*uMsg*/, WPARAM /*wParam*/, 
        LPARAM /*lParam*/, BOOL& /*bHandled*/);
    CGradientStatic m_GradientBar;     


LRESULT CMainDlg::OnInitDialog(UINT /*uMsg*/, WPARAM /*wParam*/, 
      LPARAM /*lParam*/, BOOL& /*bHandled*/) 
     m_GradientBar.SubclassWindow( ::GetDlgItem( IDC_STATIC1 ) );
