Hi VenkateshArchana,

the error messages exactly tell you what's wrong - your CView-derived class has to implement it's own 'OnDraw' function since the base class didn't implement it allthough it's declared (that's why CView is an abstract class).

So, implement a 'void MyView::OnDraw( CDC* )' to resolve this errors ...

Hope that helps,

ZOPPO

Hm - you're welcome - but, why did you decide to rate this answer as 'B'? Was anything missing or unclear or incorrect?

A CClientDC is a DC which 'addresses' the client area of a window without any extra handling. A CPaintDC is a DC which internally handles calls to 'BeginDraw' and 'EndDraw' GDI functions which are used to draw when a window (or part of it) needs to be updated. So a CPaintDC i.e. is created with a clipping region including only the parts of the window which needs updating, a CClientDC initially has no clipping region.

Addition: due to the above mentioned you usually cannot use CPaintDC outside of a WM_PAINT message handler since only within a WM_PAINT message handler BeginPaint/EndPaint can be used to create a DC. And, further, it's not possible to create more than one CPaintDC while processing a WM_PAINT message ...

Well, the usage of both is the same (as with any kind of DC), the only difference is when to use which one - commonly (i.e. with a CView) there's no need to worry about this since the relevant functions get a CDC* passed like CView::OnDraw. A CPaintDC is only needed/used when a WM_PAINT message is to be handled directly, so i.e. if a new kind of control is to be implemented.

Here's a link to a book (at google-boos) with lot's of MFC samples, maybe this can help you: http://books.google.com/books?id=7PsZNxl_5U8C&pg=PA120&lpg=PA120&dq=CPaintDC+sample&source=bl&ots=SYdWrtLJMn&sig=S-4kSnkbSPzeFk7RhPtr8C9AE8E&hl=de&ei=fz3lTPTqJoLusgavgN24Cw&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=6&ved=0CEYQ6AEwBQ#v=onepage&q&f=false
