Address Book application

Address book helps you look up your addresses from the system tray. 
It is quite useful in that way �cause it stays out of the way and is 
easily accessible when needed. Double clicking on any URL will start 
the default web browser and take you to that URL. Double clicking on 
the phone number will dial that number. Every column supports 
sorting and can be customized to your needs. Preview will display 
the notes associated with each record. 
This program can also import Comma Separated Values (*csv) text files 
of Outlook Express.

AppWizard has created this Address application for you.  This application
not only demonstrates the basics of using the Microsoft Foundation classes
but is also a starting point for writing your application.

This file contains a summary of what you will find in each of the files that
make up your Address application.

    This is the main header file for the application.  It includes other
    project specific headers (including Resource.h) and declares the
    CAddressApp application class.

    This is the main application source file that contains the application
    class CAddressApp.

    This is a listing of all of the Microsoft Windows resources that the
    program uses.  It includes the icons, bitmaps, and cursors that are stored
    in the RES subdirectory.  This file can be directly edited in Microsoft
	Developer Studio.

    This is an icon file, which is used as the application's icon.  This
    icon is included by the main resource file Address.rc.

    This file contains resources that are not edited by Microsoft 
	Developer Studio.  You should place all resources not
	editable by the resource editor in this file.

    This file contains information used by ClassWizard to edit existing
    classes or add new classes.  ClassWizard also uses this file to store
    information needed to create and edit message maps and dialog data
    maps and to create prototype member functions.


For the main frame window:

MainFrm.h, MainFrm.cpp
    These files contain the frame class CMainFrame, which is derived from
    CFrameWnd and controls all SDI frame features.

    This bitmap file is used to create tiled images for the toolbar.
    The initial toolbar and status bar are constructed in the
    CMainFrame class.  Edit this toolbar bitmap along with the
    array in MainFrm.cpp to add more toolbar buttons.


AppWizard creates one document type and one view:

AddressDoc.h, AddressDoc.cpp - the document
    These files contain your CAddressDoc class.  Edit these files to
    add your special document data and to implement file saving and loading
    (via CAddressDoc::Serialize).

AddressView.h, AddressView.cpp - the view of the document
    These files contain your CAddressView class.
    CAddressView objects are used to view CAddressDoc objects.

Other standard files:

StdAfx.h, StdAfx.cpp
    These files are used to build a precompiled header (PCH) file
    named Address.pch and a precompiled types file named StdAfx.obj.

    This is the standard header file, which defines new resource IDs.
    Microsoft Developer Studio reads and updates this file.

Other notes:

AppWizard uses "TODO:" to indicate parts of the source code you
should add to or customize.

If your application uses MFC in a shared DLL, and your application is 
in a language other than the operating system's current language, you
will need to copy the corresponding localized resources MFC40XXX.DLL
from the Microsoft Visual C++ CD-ROM onto the system or system32 directory,
and rename it to be MFCLOC.DLL.  ("XXX" stands for the language abbreviation.
For example, MFC40DEU.DLL contains resources translated to German.)  If you
don't do this, some of the UI elements of your application will remain in the
language of the operating system.
