While trying something out, I wrote a small program that drew a line from one point to another point, using CView's OnDraw fn.  The code was basically this:

pDC->SelectStockObject(BLACK_PEN);
pDC->MoveTo(10, 10);
pDC->LineTo(100, 100);


This worked, and drew a diagonal line with no problem.
When I then tried to do the same thing, but using a CScrollView, I couldn't get it to do anything.

Any help?

CScrollView
you need to call PrepareDC(CDC* ) before using the DC.
but you need call this function in the OnDraw(...).
