Hi,
I would like to put a scrollbar on the left side of my dialog.  I've tried to set the "Left scroll bar" style in the resource editor but it doesn't work.  According to Microsoft doc, the OS language must be hebrew or arabic for this to work.  Is there a anyway to do this on an english OS?

Thanks!

Yes: draw your own scrollbar control explicitly, and scroll whatever you want in response to the message it sends. Like the docs say, you can't have the _system_ create and manage a left-hand scrollbar unless you're using a bidirectional language.

Ok, I already knew that this was possible but I would like my scrollbar to be system-driven...  However, it could also be a CScrollBar or CScrollView derived class whiche handle the scrolling stuff...

No, it isn't. These classes just add the appropriate styles to the windows they create and have Windows do the work.

Was there something else you needed that I didn't provide?  That is, why the grade of "C"?

Sorry for the grade of C but I already knew that I could draw my own scrollbar.  Actually, I'm looking for a way to avoid this (e.g. by using a derived class).

Sorry again and thank you very much for trying to help me.

Oh. Then, you should've mentioned that in the question. That way, I wouldn't have bothered.  You see, I can only answer the question that you actuall ask, not the hidden, unknown question you intend to grade me on.

  > (e.g. by using a derived class).

Like I said, all the MFC classes use Windows to manage their scrollbars. So, no MFC-supplied class will do the work for you. You've either got to write it yourself or steal some code from somene else to do it for you.

Sorry to take much of your precious time.  Next time, I'll try to make my question clear.

However, let me remember you something: we are not here to get grades of A but to help each other.

And I can't provide adequate help if I don't know the _real_ question.
