    Introduction

    kPad is a lightweight text editor that works with RTF and TXT file formats.

    It's an example of using the WTL library and RichEdit control, and is based on the MTPad sample from the Microsoft SDK (12/01/99).

    Features

    • Sheets control
    • Find and Replace custom dialogs
    • Small size (104 Kb)

    Implementation

    With the help of the ATL\WTL AppWizard I created a "Multiple Threads SDI" project with a generic view window. The class SheetsCtrl is a view window for the Main Frame and a container for kSheetView child windows. kSheetView is a superclass of the RichEdit control.

    The small size of 105 Kb is achieved by removing the dependancy on the CRT library (_ATL_MIN_CRT) and use the project options /OPT:REF, /OPT:ICF, /OPT:NOWIN98.

    Environment

    This application was created with VC 6.0. SP3, WTL and the January MS SDK. It has been tested only on W2k.
