RTF format showing in my program...

Hi,

I need to know how to make a program, witch could show text and PICTURES like MS Word. I need to be able to write something in Word then copy it and paste into my program. I know that rtf can be shown using rich edit, but it doesnt show pictures... Any suggestions?

Thanx for reading...

Use CRichEditCtrl or CRichEditView. You can use Paste Special to insert any type of insertable objects into rich edit control.
Check out WORDPAD MFC sample.

Hmm, you should know, that i'm only a beginer in windows programming with only OOP and i dont know how to use that CRichEditCtrl. I'm using VC++ 6 and when i try to use that CRichEditCtrl my program just doesnt work; it compiles but doesnt appera when i run it. I am using class CRichEditCtrl on Rich Edit field, maybe thats my problem... And right now i cant find that WORDPAD example... Please help!

1) From MSDN:
Important   If you are using a rich edit control in a dialog box (regardless whether your application is SDI, MDI, or dialog-based), you must call AfxInitRichEdit once before the dialog box is displayed. A typical place to call this function is in your program’s InitInstance member function. You do not need to call it for each time you display the dialog box, only the first time. You do not have to call AfxInitRichEdit if you are working with CRichEditView.

2) Type WORDPAD in MSDN index and open topic WORDPAD sample (MFC).

Hmm, thanx for help... i now have an example which does what i want. Unfortunately it does a lot more... :( and i'm not that experienced that i could find what i need easily... U know, i'm only 17 years old... Hmm, any help on how to get what i need from it and throw out all those other nonsences?
BTW, i need only to be able to show all those things that that wordpad shows. It would be great to be able to show it in dialog box in some object... And those editing things... Well, maybe i could use those, but it may be too hard for me :(
I'm creating a program which could show text like that wordpad does, but in one part or maybe version of my program i need only to show it, and in the other, maybe, edit it... also i'll need saving and loading, but i hope that that wont be too hard, i hope...
well, thatnx for your help again, any more help on how to extract the things i need from it? :)
