, 6 Jun 2002 CPOL 364.6K 11.7K 90
A small CDialog derived class that helps avoid frequent copy/pasting of the same code, when using a bitmap as dialog background
// BitmapDialogDlg.h : header file

#if !defined(AFX_BITMAPDIALOGDLG_H__B3DD461D_0939_41AE_8CC4_0102426B2F29__INCLUDED_)
#define AFX_BITMAPDIALOGDLG_H__B3DD461D_0939_41AE_8CC4_0102426B2F29__INCLUDED_

#if _MSC_VER > 1000
#pragma once
#endif // _MSC_VER > 1000

#include "BDialog.h"

// CBitmapDialogDlg dialog

class CBitmapDialogDlg : public CBDialog
// Construction
	CBitmapDialogDlg(CWnd* pParent = NULL);	// standard constructor

// Dialog Data
		// NOTE: the ClassWizard will add data members here

	// ClassWizard generated virtual function overrides
	virtual void DoDataExchange(CDataExchange* pDX);	// DDX/DDV support

// Implementation
	HICON m_hIcon;

	// Generated message map functions
	virtual BOOL OnInitDialog();
	afx_msg void OnPaint();
	afx_msg HCURSOR OnQueryDragIcon();
	afx_msg void OnTile();
	afx_msg void OnCenter();
	afx_msg void OnStretch();

// Microsoft Visual C++ will insert additional declarations immediately before the previous line.

#endif // !defined(AFX_BITMAPDIALOGDLG_H__B3DD461D_0939_41AE_8CC4_0102426B2F29__INCLUDED_)
