Displaying file in a CScrollView

I am using Visual C++ v1.5, under WFW.
I would like to display a filename in a CScrollView, the
file may be >64k, I am currently doing this using TextOut for
each line in the file inside the OnDraw method of the ScrollView.
However, this is very slow, how can I optimise it - has
anyone any sample code?? I have tried using the RectVisible
function inside CDC, and it produces strange results. Any
code/optimisation ideas would be greatly welcome.
Thanks,
Douglas

You are probably redrawing all of your text every time you scroll, so you need to restrict your text drawing to only the region invalidated by CScrollview.  The SCRIBBLE tutorial (STEP 8) CScrollView::OnDraw() has a good example.  Your implementation will be different the priciple will be the same.  You need to examine the clipping box returned by GetClipBox() to determine which text lines to draw.  Since you know the height of each line by your y increment for TEXTOUT, you should be able to divide the y coordinate of the clip region by the increment to get the starting line.  You can do a similar manipulation to get the number of lines by dividing the box height by the increment.  By restricting the drawing, you will speed up your app.
