Okay, here is my problem... hope i can find some kind souls here to help me.

Here is a part of my code for Segment 1 Dialog Box.

void CSegOne::OnSegoneapplyButton()

{

// to update the controls

UpdateData(TRUE);

// m_DispType and m_MotionType are basically combo

// box for deciding which equations to use and

// m_MaxHt and m_TwoAngle are variable determine

// by the users

if(m_DispType == 1 && m_MotionType == 0)

{

for (theta=0; theta<m_TwoAngle; theta+5)

{

displacement = (m_MaxHt/2)*(1-(cos(0.5*theta)));

}

OnOK();

Invalidate();

}

The problem is... after generating the various values for the displacement and theta, how to I update them to my OnDraw function so that I can plot the points out?

Here is a small part of my OnDraw function.

I have omitted certain lines to keep this question short.

void CCamView::OnDraw(CDC* pDC)

{

CCamDoc* pDoc = GetDocument();

ASSERT_VALID(pDoc);

pDC->MoveTo(50, 150);

pDC->LineTo(450, 150);

pDC->LineTo(450, 350);

pDC->LineTo(50, 350);

pDC->LineTo(50, 150);

// Draw the vertical gridlines

pDC->SelectObject(&thin_line);

pDC->MoveTo(150, 150);

pDC->LineTo(150, 350);

pDC->MoveTo(250, 150);

pDC->LineTo(250, 350);

pDC->MoveTo(350, 150);

pDC->LineTo(350, 350);

// Draw the horizontal gridlines

pDC->MoveTo(50, 150);

pDC->LineTo(450, 150);

pDC->MoveTo(50, 200);

pDC->LineTo(450, 200);

pDC->MoveTo(50, 250);

pDC->LineTo(450, 250);

pDC->MoveTo(50, 300);

pDC->LineTo(450, 300);

// Label the x-axis

pDC->TextOut(50, 360, "0");

pDC->TextOut(150, 360, "100");

pDC->TextOut(250, 360, "200");

pDC->TextOut(350, 360, "300");

pDC->TextOut(450, 360, "400");

// To display the 4 different views

pDC->SelectObject(pOldPen);

CFont * pOldFont = pDC->SelectObject(&big_font);

if (m_SelectedView == "DISPLACEMENT")

{

CCamDoc* pDoc = GetDocument();

pDC->TextOut(50, 100, "Displacement Diagram");

pDC->SelectObject(&blue_line);

//here is essentially a str line

//m_XCoord is my theta and m_YCoord is my

//displacement. m_XCoord and m_YCoord have been

//initialised to 50 and 348 respectively.

pDC->MoveTo(m_XCoord, m_YCoord);

pDC->LineTo(m_XCoord+360, m_YCoord);

//On apply button, here is where i need to add in

//the codes for plotting of the points

}
