OpenGL+ScrollView+MFC

I want to implement scrollbars for openGl scene

That what I’m doing:
IMPLEMENT_DYNCREATE(COglView, CScrollView)

void COglView::OnInitialUpdate()
{
CScrollView::OnInitialUpdate();
CSize sizeTotal;
CRect clientRec;
GetClientRect(clientRec);
sizeTotal = GetTotalSize();
sizeTotal.cx = (clientRec.Width())*m_GLManager.GetScaleFactor();
sizeTotal.cy = (clientRec.Height())*m_GLManager.GetScaleFactor();

SetScrollSizes(MM_TEXT, sizeTotal);
}

OnZoomin function:
m_scalefactor += 0.1;

OnDrawScene function
glScalef(m_scalefactor,m_scalefactor,m_scalefactor);

to “scroll” the scene I’m using glTranslatef(m_TranslateX,m_TranslateY,m_TranslateZ);

Now my question how to find the relationship between position of the scroll bar and how I should increase/decrease
m_TranslateX and m_TranslateY parameters ???

Please help me, it’s really urgent .
Thank you.
P.S
some example could be very help

OpenGL mantains its own "double buffer" that doesn't interact with MFC windows, including scrolling behaviour. If you want to scroll an openGL window, you have to "trap" the scrolling events and scroll the opengl view by yourself using the glTranslate function.

I think my answer is correct, there is not relation between scrollview (or any other MFC windows) and OpenGL, usual technique is to "synchronize by hand" trapping WM_SCROLL events and performing scroll with glTranslate().

Hi jaime_olivares,
I know that I nee to "synchronize by hand”, and that exactly what I tried to do, but my question was how to find on how many units I need to Translate my OpenglView when I clicked on the scroll bar.
Do you have any example to demonstrate the technique??

Thank you
