MFC: When drawing in a view by overloading OnDraw(CDC* pDC), how can the view be explicitly redrawn?


I'm drawing on an MFC view in the usual manner - by overloading OnDraw(CDC* pDC). When I change some setting which will cause the view to be drawn in a different way then it was previously drawn (in my case, change the "page" of the view, an int, which will cause my OnDraw to draw another area), there is no way that I'm aware of to tell the view to redraw - I must resize the window or something.

How can the view be explicitly redrawn?

You must call pView->Invalidate();
