Yet Another Transparent Static Control

, 14 Dec 2004 CPOL 142.4K 5.1K 50
Two other methods of making a transparent static control.
// TransStaticSample6Dlg.cpp : implementation file

#include "stdafx.h"
#include "TransStaticSample6.h"
#include "TransStaticSample6Dlg.h"

#ifdef _DEBUG
#define new DEBUG_NEW
#undef THIS_FILE
static char THIS_FILE[] = __FILE__;

// CAboutDlg dialog used for App About

class CAboutDlg : public CDialog

// Dialog Data
	enum { IDD = IDD_ABOUTBOX };

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

// Implementation

CAboutDlg::CAboutDlg() : CDialog(CAboutDlg::IDD)

void CAboutDlg::DoDataExchange(CDataExchange* pDX)

		// No message handlers

// CTransStaticSample6Dlg dialog

CTransStaticSample6Dlg::CTransStaticSample6Dlg(CWnd* pParent /*=NULL*/)
	: CDialog(CTransStaticSample6Dlg::IDD, pParent)
		// NOTE: the ClassWizard will add member initialization here
	// Note that LoadIcon does not require a subsequent DestroyIcon in Win32

void CTransStaticSample6Dlg::DoDataExchange(CDataExchange* pDX)
	DDX_Control(pDX, IDC_STATIC2, m_MyStatic2);
	DDX_Control(pDX, IDC_STATIC1, m_MyStatic);

BEGIN_MESSAGE_MAP(CTransStaticSample6Dlg, CDialog)

// CTransStaticSample6Dlg message handlers

BOOL CTransStaticSample6Dlg::OnInitDialog()
	return TRUE;  // return TRUE  unless you set the focus to a control

void CTransStaticSample6Dlg::OnTimer(UINT nIDEvent) 
static Counter = 0;
   if (Counter % 2)
      m_MyStatic.SetWindowText("This is a test this is only a test");
      m_MyStatic2.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_MyStatic.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_MyStatic2.SetWindowText("This is a test this is only a test");
