Display of ATL COM Object
Posted on 2001-09-05
I created an ATL COM object that is visible during design time but invisible during runtime. During design time, I print out some text that names the control in the OnDraw function. What I would like to do is to display a square box that looks like a button without the user being able to change the size of the object. Maybe even put a picture representing my control in the button. This is how other objects that are normally not displayed at runtime are shown during design time (e.g. the VB timer control). I would like to do something analogous to the VB timer control.
My Windows drawing skills are very weak. I would appreciate any help I can get in this area.
