Re: Create a desired layout

The reason I find static layouts to be cumbersome is that some people will
change the size of the fonts and then there is no way to for them to resize
the dialog to get rid of the scrolling nightmare. If one does do a static
layout they should provide automatic resizing when the mainframe resizes so
that people can use their real estate effectively... just an opinion of
course. I've been locked into working on and using programs that do
otherwise so...

The I'd use a CFormView. If you want to be able to resize the elements by
dragging their
borders, this is just some mouse hacking and a bit of arithmetic. Not
that hard to do.
You can download a simple example from my MVP Tips site (Thread Affinity
Explorer) and see
what I did there, and generalize it.

and the reason why doc/view is used is that I want all the image effect
operation can be done in DOC.

I don't understand what you mean?!

I'd be tempted to just do the six panes in a CFormView and do my own
resizing. Or just do
a dialog-based app (depends on the needs for status bar, printing,
etc.). It isn't very
hard to do this (see, for example, my Thread Affinity Explorer that has
a resizable window
on a dialog-based app)

Hi, all

The following is my desired UI layout:

| 1 |
| 2 | 3 | |
| | | |
------------------------- 6 |
| 4 | 5 | |
| | | |

The region 2 is the tree view of the folders in my local PC, and region
will show the thumbnails of image files that in the folder selected in
region 2.

The region 4 is the tree view of the folders in remote PC(I've created
local folder in my PC for it, so it just a local folder in my PC in
developement stage), and region 5 wil show the thumbnails of image
files that
in the folder selected in the region 4.

The region 1 will show the selected image files in the region 3.

The region 6 have some functions that can perform on the selected image
in the region 3.

Is any one can tell how to achieve that!?

Below are what I thought:
Use SDI.
Also write a MyMainFrame class with CSplitterWnd that split the main
into six region.
Then write a DOC class and six VIEWs for each region.
But I don't know how to bound and use the VIEWs and DOC with
that can achieve my desired goal.

Thanks for your anwsers.
