I'm looking at adding some functionality to a tool that lays out graphical objects on a view. I would like to mimic the selection behavior of other commercial applications that highlight selected objects with the hatched frames with points (like PowerPoint, Visio, etc.). In doing the analysis, I was wondering if anyone else has gone down this path had has some MFC design pattern advise or at least help me avoid any unnecessary pitfalls. There might even be a good class in a library that does this, but I haven't found it yet. Suggestions?
Any help is greatly appreciated.... Thanks!
