GetParentFrame() in MFC Extension DLL.

I have been making some of my code re-usable by compiling it into a MFC Extension DLL. The code is responsible for displaying DIBs, including scrolling, zooming, and adding annotations. The code worked fine when it was compiled directly into my application.

I have found however that now that it is a MFC Extension DLL, when the scrollbars are activated they overlap the toolbar and the status bar.

I use the function GetParentFrame() to locate the frame where the scrollbars should be attached. In a MFC Extension DLL does this not take into account the toolbar and status bar? Is there a function that will determine the frame excluding the toolbar and status bar? Do I have to work this out myself, in which case how can I shrink the scrollbar, or reposition it based on where the toolbar / status bar is.

I think your problem will disappear if you just call CFrameWnd::RecalcLayout() after you have turned the scroll bars on.

Hope this helps.
