Iam trying to develop a MFC application to view bmps with wiping effect(this is similar to transition effects in slide presentation in MS-PowerPoint presentation) .Can anybody  give some hints to do this

The easier way to do this is to use the 2 bitmaps and compute them in a MemDC when making a transition, the first one correspond to the Source bitmap, the second one to the Target Bitmap.

If as an example you would like to make it appear from up to down, like the Effect you could see in Powerpoint named Wipe Down (same effect that you could see in Star Wars Cooool!).

What you got to do is to always compute the displayed bitmap from BitBlt with the 2 bitmap on which you wanna have the transition.

You could construct it easely by 2 BitBlt on the Memory DC in that way:

Bitmap source: CBitmap bmpSource;
Bitmap Target, CBitmap bmpTarget;
Display size      long lFullHeight, lFullWidth;
Current Slide Top Height long lCurrentHeight;

void CMyView::OnDraw( CDC * pDC )
{

if (bDoingATransition)
{
  CDC memdc;
  CClientDC dcClient(this);

  // Create a compatible memory DC
  memdc.CreateCompatibleDC( &dcClient );

  // Select the bitmap into the DC
  poldbmp = memdc.SelectObject( &bmpSource );

  // Copy (BitBlt) bitmap from memory DC to screen DC
  dc.BitBlt(0, 0, lFullWidth, lFullHeight,&memdc,
                0, 0, SRCCOPY );
  memdc.SelectObject( &bmpTarget );
  dc.BitBlt(0, 0, lFullWidth, lCurrentHeight, &memdc,
                0, 0, SRCCOPY );
  memdc.SelectObject( poldbmp );
}
else
{
... //DO standard display Stuff...
}
}

//and in a Timer  you have to change the lCurrentHeight value
void CMyView::OnTimer(UINT nIDEvent)
{
if (nIDEvent = ID_TIMER_DO_TRANSITION_WIPE_DOWN)
{
  lCurrentHeight += lCurrentHeight/8;
  if (lCurrentHeight >= lFullHeight)
  {
      bTransitionDone = TRUE;
      bDoingATransition = FALSE;
      //Put here the code to change Source Bitmap and fill it
      //with the current Target Bitmap
   }
}
else
  CView::OnTimer((nIDEvent);
}


For the other transition, just change the way to compute the Result in MemDC. Most of the powerpoint transition can be just done by modifying the BitBlits parameters, and change on the compute on timer. For more sofisticated ones, you got to do mulitpple BitBlt, for, as an exemple, display a little square of each appear, one after the other...

And you could also create new ones easely...but that's another story!

May the MFC be with you!
