Timer locked when holding mouse down (WinNT)
Posted on 1998-03-03
I have a MDI application which uses MultiDocTemplate as well.
My CFormView derived class contains a timer proc which is interrupted by some events; like holding down the mouse button on the window's title bar. This is what I want to avoid (my timer proc. which does audio playback CAN'T be interrupted).
Remark: By "holding down the mouse button" I also mean: not moving the mouse. If I move the mouse (thus the window) then the timer proc gets called.
I tried to implement a CWinThread to handle the events as shown in the MTBounce sample code (which "bounces" a ball even when holding the mouse down on the window's title bar).
The difference is that the MTBounce sample doesn't use a MultiDocTemplate. So I've put the creation of my Thread (which must create itself the CFormView derived object) in the "OnCreateClient" proc of my CMDIChilWindow derived class.
The problem is: it makes no difference, the same events are "locking" the application and prevent the timer proc to run.
I'm quite new to MFC programming but I think I correctly applied the source code of MTBounce in my app, except that I'm not sure at all regarding what MultiDocTemplate could do to interfere.
Thanks to all.
