Solution 4

1. Place Button with Resource Editor
2. Add Variable for Button (for example m_StopButton ) with Wizard
3. Rename
CButton  m_StopButtonto;

CMFCButton  m_StopButton;

4. Change some visible features

// Set the background color for the button text.
  // Set the tooltip of the button.
  m_StopButton.SetTooltip(_T("This is my Stop Button!"));

I used this code on VS2010 but id did not seem to work.

I added an MFC button from the resource editor and wrote.

CMFCButton *pButton = (CMFCButton *)GetDlgItem(IDC_MFCBUTTON1);

I wonder why the code doesn't seem to work.

(1)Note that the background is not filled when the CMFCButton::m_bTransparent member variable is TRUE.

(2)SetFaceColor() is ignored by modern theme engines. The wizard greates something like:


You can comment this line out to disable custom MFC themes. This works, but the button
will not look good because of classic theme.

Possibly you can Load a Color-Bitmap to get the color you want.

Another solution would be to do an ownerdraw button - handling the OnDrawItem() or WM_DRAWITEM
message and do the painting yourself.

It is also needed to include the header afxbutton.h, i.e. #include "afxbutton.h"
