I have made a sdi application (in vc60) and I have created a new class derived from CDialog.
From that class I have to refresh the sdi so I have to call OnDraw() function or something
like that. How Can I do this?
tahnx.

Hi pelau,

you can simply call RedrawWindow() or Invalidate()/InvalidateRect() followed by UpdateWindow() against the window you need. In SDI you can do somehow like this:

CWnd* pMainWnd = AfxGetMainWnd();
CView* pView = pMainWnd->GetActiveView();
pView->RedrawWindow();


hope that helps,
