Hello,

I want to draw in the View window of a MFC application. This can be done with LineTo, MoveTo, etc. Now when I want to draw a rect, that moves when my mouse moves, the old rects are still there. I can update de view window with pDoc->UpdateAllViews()  but this causes my application to crasch sometimes and the View window flickers with this 'animation'.

Is there another appraoch how  you can avoid this problem?

In OnMouseMove change rectangle coordinates (keep them in member variables) and invalidate window. But don't draw in OnMouseMove, all drawing code should be in OnDraw. To prevent flickering, use memory device context.
Check out MFC sample DRAWCLI.

Hi Hermy,


maybe you should even check out the CRectTracker class ... it's especailly made for implementing selection rectangles
and can be moved and resized ... in MSDN it's usage is well described.

first you store coordinates of rectangle drawn last time.
draw the rectangle with this coordinates but with background color and then draw
new rectangle with your forground color and save coordinates
