Upgrading VC++ 1.53 app to VC++ 5.0
Posted on 1998-09-23
Platform: Win95/Win32, Compiler: VC++ 5.0 (Visual Studio)
I have an application wich was made in Visual C++ v.1.53. It uses the VBX-control GRID.VBX to display data in grid-form.
Now I'm going to upgrade the app. to Visual C++ v.5.0, and had two immediate problems upon trying to build the converted app. (automatic upgrade in VC). The first was the _near keyword, wich I was told is obsolete, and that it just can be removed as it isn't neccesary in the Win32 development platform.
The second problem is the VBX-comtrol, wich I have to replace with the GRID32.OCX.
I'm a novice to C++, and C also, for that matter, and would like an easy to understand explanation to what steps I have to undergo to make this application work with the GRID32.OCX instead of the old VBX.
