AnimateWindow and Onpaint

Hi everybody,

I have a CDialog in which I display a colored rectangle using :
void CMyAppDlg::OnPaint()
{
      CPaintDC dc(this); // device context for painting
      CRect rDividerInfo;
      GetDlgItem(IDC_STATICRECT)->GetWindowRect(rDividerInfo);
      ScreenToClient(rDividerInfo);
      dc.FillSolidRect(rDividerInfo, RGB(251,207,111));
}

It works fine when I open this dialog using DoModal, or when I use Create(IDC_MYDIALOG) and ShowWindow(SW_SHOW)
But if I try :

HWND hwnd=myDialog->GetSafeHwnd();
BOOL bRis= AnimateWindow(hwnd, 3000, AW_SLIDE | AW_VER_POSITIVE);

the animateWindow sliding effect works, but my colored rectangle is no displayed  anymore...

Could anyone help me?

Thanks a lot!

Vincent

To redraw rectangle after animation, add lines:
BOOL bRis= AnimateWindow(hwnd, 3000, AW_SLIDE | AW_VER_POSITIVE);
Invalidate();
UpdateWindow();

To redraw rectangle during animation, you ned to handle WM_PRINT message.

AnimateWindow function requirement:
The window procedures for the window and its child windows should handle any WM_PRINT or WM_PRINTCLIENT messages. Dialog boxes, controls, and common controls already handle WM_PRINTCLIENT. The default window procedure already handles WM_PRINT.

So, AnimateWindow function sends WM_PRINT message to dialog window procedure and it drawis itself using default implementation. But this default implementation doesn't include your drawing code. Try this way:

See the post "needs supports for WM_PRINT".

Hi,

Thanks, I still miss something... Now my dialog is only displayed when I put an other window over it, ( the sliding effect is not visible). I suppose I've not rightly dealed with OnPaint... Thanks a lot for your help

In my main dailog I call:

CMyDialogDlg* dlg=new CMyDialogDlg();
dlg->Create(IDD_MYDIALOG,this);
HWND hwnd=effec->GetSafeHwnd();
BOOL bRis = AnimateWindow(hwnd, 3000, AW_SLIDE | AW_VER_POSITIVE);

Then in MyDialogDlg.cpp I've added :

//}}AFX_MSG_MAP
      ON_MESSAGE(WM_PRINT, OnPrint)
END_MESSAGE_MAP()

and :

LRESULT CMyDialogDlg::OnPrint(WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam)
{
    Draw((HDC) wParam);
      DoEvents();
    return 0;
}

void CMyDialogDlg::Draw(HDC hdc)
{
    CDC    dc;
    dc.Attach(hdc);
    CRect rDividerInfo;
    GetDlgItem(IDC_STATICRECT)->GetWindowRect(rDividerInfo);
    ScreenToClient(rDividerInfo);
    dc.FillSolidRect(rDividerInfo, RGB(251,207,111));
}

void CMyDialogDlg::OnPaint()
{
      CPaintDC dc(this); // device context for painting
      Draw(dc.m_ps.hdc);
}

and in MyDialog.h

      afx_msg void OnPaint();
      //}}AFX_MSG
                                 LRESULT OnPrint(WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam);
      DECLARE_MESSAGE_MAP()

>>the sliding effect is not visible

what if you use Sleep() after AnimateWindow() something like :

AnimateWindow(hWnd, 500, AW_SLIDE or AW_VER_POSITIVE )
Sleep(1000);
AnimateWindow(hWnd, 500, AW_SLIDE or AW_VER_NEGATIVE);

You have a problem in the following function
void CMyDialogDlg::Draw(HDC hdc)
{
    CDC    dc;
    dc.Attach(hdc);
    CRect rDividerInfo;
    GetDlgItem(IDC_STATICRECT)->GetWindowRect(rDividerInfo);
    ScreenToClient(rDividerInfo);
    dc.FillSolidRect(rDividerInfo, RGB(251,207,111));
dc.Detach();   //<<----------------------  VERY IMPORTANT TO RELEASE THE DC AFTER USE
}



I have tried this here with success  (Overrride the WindowProc of the dialog)


LRESULT CMyDlg::WindowProc(UINT message, WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam)
{
      // TODO: Add your specialized code here and/or call the base class
      LRESULT lRes = CDialog::WindowProc(message, wParam, lParam);
      if(message == WM_PRINT)
      {
            CDC dc;
            dc.Attach((HDC)wParam);
            dc.FillSolidRect(10, 10, 100, 100, RGB(255, 0, 0));
            dc.Detach();
      }

      return lRes;
}

All you should require is

HWND hwnd=myDialog->GetSafeHwnd();
BOOL bRis= AnimateWindow(hwnd, 3000, AW_SLIDE | AW_VER_POSITIVE);

LRESULT CMyDlg::WindowProc(UINT message, WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam)
{
     // TODO: Add your specialized code here and/or call the base class
     LRESULT lRes = CDialog::WindowProc(message, wParam, lParam);
     if(message == WM_PRINT)
     {
          CDC dc;
          dc.Attach((HDC)wParam);
      CRect rDividerInfo;
     GetDlgItem(IDC_STATICRECT)->GetWindowRect(rDividerInfo);
     ScreenToClient(rDividerInfo);
     dc.FillSolidRect(rDividerInfo, RGB(251,207,111));
          dc.Detach();
     }

     return lRes;
}
