Welcome to CPushPinButton, A Freeware MFC PushPin button class.
Its appearance is similar to the pin button as seen on the OpenLook
window manager on X-Windows & property dialogs in MSDEV aka VC++ IDE. The class is
derived from CButton and when used appears as follows:
- To use the class in your code simply include PushPin.cpp and PushPin.h in your
#include "PushPin.h" in which ever of your modules needs to make calls
to the class.
- You should also ensure that the 4 bitmaps (namely
are copied over into your rc file.
- Create a dialog template with an owner-draw button positioned where you want the push pin
button. The size of the button in the template does not matter.
- Using Classwizard associate a CBitmap with the button you just created. Then modify the
declaration of the variable to make it a CPushPinButton instead of CButton.
- To ensure that the class operates correctly when a color scheme change occurs, You should call
ReloadBitmaps() method in response to
- Your code will need to include MFC either statically or dynamically.

V1.12 (2 June 1999)
- Added a number of comments to improve code readability.
- Changed the resource id of the button bitmaps to more meaningful values.
