Yet Another Transparent Static Control

, 14 Dec 2004 CPOL
Two other methods of making a transparent static control.
// TransStaticDlg.cpp : implementation file
//

#include "stdafx.h"
#include "TransStatic.h"
#include "TransStaticDlg.h"

#ifdef _DEBUG
#define new DEBUG_NEW
#endif

	: CDialog(CTransStaticDlg::IDD, pParent)
{
}

void CTransStaticDlg::DoDataExchange(CDataExchange* pDX)
{
   CDialog::DoDataExchange(pDX);
   DDX_Control(pDX, IDC_STATIC1, m_Static1);
   DDX_Control(pDX, IDC_STATIC2, m_Static2);
}

BEGIN_MESSAGE_MAP(CTransStaticDlg, CDialog)
   ON_WM_TIMER()
	//}}AFX_MSG_MAP
END_MESSAGE_MAP()


// CTransStaticDlg message handlers

BOOL CTransStaticDlg::OnInitDialog()
{
	CDialog::OnInitDialog();
   SetTimer(100,500,NULL);
   return TRUE;  // return TRUE  unless you set the focus to a control
}


void CTransStaticDlg::OnTimer(UINT nIDEvent)
{
static Counter = 0;
   
   if (Counter % 2)
   {
      m_Static1.SetWindowText("This is a test this is only a test");
      m_Static2.SetWindowText("This string Should be long enough that you would notice the flicker, this is a test this is only a test if this was an actual emergancy the this would not have been a test");
   }
   else
   {
      m_Static1.SetWindowText("This string Should be long enough that you would notice the flicker, this is a test this is only a test if this was an actual emergancy the this would not have been a test");
      m_Static2.SetWindowText("This is a test this is only a test");
   }
   Counter++;
   CDialog::OnTimer(nIDEvent);
}
