Problem with MFCApp

Hi,
Further to this

did you open 'resource files' in solution explorer? then look for mfcapplication2.rc if found double-click. if there is another .rc file you also may double-click.

double-click will open the resource view. it is a tree where you could define new resources. below 'dialog' you already will find two entries. one for about dialog and one for the dialog form generated by wizard as a starter for your dialog-based mfc application.

if you click on the IDD_DIALOG1 (or similar) you get a form resource with ok and cancel button and a static control stating 'define your controls here'. first, you would click on that static text control and remove it by 'DEL' key. if you don't see a tool box with controls in the docking area on the right, you should get the toolbox via the 'view' menu. if done so far, you can select controls from toolbox and move them by drag'n'drop to the form. selecting a control in the form and ALT+ENTER allows to define the properties of the control. you should first change the default ID of the control to some meaningful name, for example IDC_ST_KEY for a static text control "Key" and IDC_ED_KEY for the corresponding edit control. you may use your own syntax, but do not take the defaults since that would make it difficult to discuss about them. you can test a defined form by choosing the 'test' button which is available by mini buttons of the resource editor. you also will find buttons which help to size and align the controls in the form. for example you could select multiple controls in the form by holding the CTRL key while selecting controls and then make them all same size or have them aligned left or have them same distance within one line or column.

you can select controls from toolbox and move them by drag'n'drop to the form. selecting a control in the form and ALT+ENTER allows to define the properties of the control.

what objects should be added to the current DIAGLOG form you're talking about?
0
sarabandeCommented:
you may need
- some static text controls for example with text "File Path".
- some edit controls which correspond to the static text control.
- a group of radio buttons to make  achoice between different record types
- a push button to invoke a query
- a listbox or list control or static multiline box to display results

see above where i made a detailed description of the first steps you could do.

1. Does it mean we need to validate the given File Path?
2. What are the available record types?

sarabandeCommented:
1. Does it mean we need to validate the given File Path?
no. not necessarily. if your program "knows" that the files are below c:\dp4 and that the names are flname*.idx, flnumber*.idx or flout.dat, you would ask like

index name        File Number: [___]
index number    File Number: [___]
data record    

File Path : [c:\dp4\_______________________________]

in your dialog where you have 3 radio buttons to let the User decide which structure to choose, where you have a pair of static text + edit field for the number extension of the two index structures and finally a static text with "File Path" and a static output text control where you display the path which you would get by createFileName function. for example if the User selects 'index number' and entered '17' for file number, the path would evaluate to "c:\dp4\flnumber_17.idx".

you would fill the path either after the User clicked to a Button 'Check File Exists' or whenever there is a change on either the radio buttons or the edit controls asking for file number.

Should I create the form with the details, within BinaryFile.cpp?

sarabandeCommented:
Should I create the form with the details, within BinaryFile.cpp?

no. binaryfile.cpp is your interface to the files and records. it is part of the application layer while the form is part of the visualization layer. since we removed stdafx.h from binaryfile.cpp the functions and classes implemented in binaryfile.cpp cannot call into the mfc framework but only the other way round.

I think we should create the form with the details, within .rc project, right?
what do you mean by .rc project? there is a .rc file which stores all the resources you define with resource editor in the .rc file. if you right-click on controls in the resource editor you will find wizard functionality whci allow you to bind member variables of your dialog class to controls. it also makes it possible to create event handlers as a response to user input in your form. you may play with these features in order to get more experienced.

I do not see Textbox on Toolbox to define for File number.

sarabandeCommented:
I do not see Textbox
??? you don't see 'Static Text' control?

you have to "explore" all the controls in the toolbox yourself. select one, drag it to the dialog, check its properties, resize it, look for events, and so on, and find out what it could be used for. by CTRL+T (or mini button >[-]) you can test the dialog (ESC ends the test). the help and info you got for any detail is very good. i also could give you an answer to your questions, but it will last years compared to days if we would continue like we do now.

Yes, I did think Static text can fit to the needs. But I do not see the way to input to "File Number" and "File Path" in above, after I've selected Static Text.

sarabandeCommented:
I do not see the way to input to "File Number" and "File Path"
for input you have to choose edit control from toolbox. check my comments where i already elaborated which controls you need for the first approach.

the "file path" only is output. therefore you may use two static text controls (but change ID from IDC_STATIC to individual name).
or also choose edit control and make it read-only by properties.

BTW, what should be done, within Save and Cancel buttons?
0
sarabandeCommented:
Remove 'Save' since there is nothing to 'save'. or change it to 'Show Structure'. if you do so, also change name of the ID.

'cancel' should/would exit the dialog.

What kind of Edit control I should choose for File Number?
0
sarabandeCommented:
just the 'Edit Control' from toolbox. size it that it can take 4 digits. rename the id like IDC_ED_NAMIDX_FILNUM. if created right-click at the control, choose 'Add Variable...', the 'Add Member Variable Wizard' opens, use category 'Value', what allows to define a member for the contents rather than for the control, choose CString as 'Variable type' and name it like 'm_namidxFilnum' according to the ID name. choose again 'Add Variable' for the edit control and let category 'Control' and name the control variable m_edNameIdxFilnum'. repeat all for the second edit control which would take the file number for number index files. you would choose CString and not 'int' since you want to be able to let the file number empty if you want to evaluate the merged index file. then right-click again at the control and choose 'Add Eventhandler...'. Use EN_CHANGE event and click 'Add and Edit' button. it would go to the dialog cpp file where the wizard has created an empty handler function for you which was called automatically for any change on the edit field. add statement UpdateData(TRUE); into the function what will read the input from screen into the CString member variable. then use

std::wistringstream wos((LPCTSTR)m_nameIdxFilnum);
int filnum = 0;
if (!wos >> filnum) 
{
       AfxMessageBox(_T("Number input required"));
       m_edNamIdxFilnum.SetFocus();
}

i assume you have unicode character set for your project (if not choose istringstream instead of wistringstream).

the wistringstream (or istringstream) is available via #include <sstream> which must be added to the cpp file below all other include statements.

sarabandeCommented:
you need to read my posts more thoroughly.

you need two controls, a static text control and an edit control for to get an input for file number.


File Number:        _____________


the text with "File Number:" is a static text control which you can choose from toolbox and drag to the dialog. then you change the properties at least for the text. i also gave you the advice to change the ID from IDC_STATIC to an individual ID like IDC_ST_NAMIDX_FILNUM. the advantage of doing so is, that IDC_STATIC resolves to -1 what actually is not an ID(entification) but  only a default. IDC_STATIC allows to show fixed text at the screen. it does not allow to change the text dynamically or to show/hide the control (what probably we need when the radio boxes were changed by the user).

IDC_STATIC also doesn't allow to add a variable for the control, since the mapping of a variable to a control needs a unique ID for the control, differently to -1.

that was the first flaw.

the second is, that you didn't define an edit control in your form and now try to do the actions i explained with a static text control. that is more than one step back and ignores all I have told you in the last 5 comments how to do that and which steps to do.

i will no longer answer questions until you have achieved to compile and build your test application and have a dialog with 3 radio buttons, at least 1 static control "file number" and 1 edit control where the user can input the file number, and 1 cancel button where you could exit from dialog.

: CDHtmlDialog(CMFCApplication7Dlg::IDD, CMFCApplication7Dlg::IDH, pParent)
you derived the dialog from CDHtmlDialog what is a kind of web dialog. i assume you checked some checkbox when creating the dialog project.

actually i haven't any idea what a web dialog should help for your requirements. currently it requires some additionally code where i don't have any idea how to solve them. i think your dialog class should be derived from CDialog or from CDialogEx. you could change that and remove any generated code which refers to 'html' somehow. it might be easier to create a new project where you simply use the defaults and don't check any buttons where you don't know which consequences they may have. or you create a new default project and look to the differences to mfcapplication7 and
correct them in code.

function "std::basic_istringstream<_Elem, _Traits, _Alloc>::basic_istringstream(const std::basic_istringstream<_Elem, _Traits, _Alloc>::_Myt &) [with _Elem=wchar_t, _Traits
seems you forgot to include <sstream>

identifier "m_nameIdxFilnum" is undefined      
isn't it m_namIdxFilnum? or did you forget to add the member with 'add member wizard'?

identifier "m_edNamIdxFilnum" is undefined
did you forget to add the member with 'add member wizard' as described above?

note, intellisense is not a compiler. so the warnings are not compiler errors. you always should build the project in order to get compiler errors. then by f4 it jumps to the line where the error is. or double-click on the error message.

repeat all for the second edit control which would take the file number for number index files. you would choose CString and not 'int' since you want to be able to let the file number empty if you want to evaluate the merged index file. then right-click again at the control and choose 'Add Eventhandler...'. Use EN_CHANGE event and click 'Add and Edit' button. it would go to the dialog cpp file where the wizard has created an empty handler function for you which was called automatically for any change on the edit field.

are you talking about the control highlighted below?

sarabandeCommented:
the control you hilited should be located right from static control with text "Filenumber:". That is normal dialog design. you have a static text as prompt and an edit control for user input. the pair of controls belongs to the radiobutton 'Index Name'. That's why it is located in same line. if the user chooses 'index Number' we would need another pair of prompt and edit, since the user would be confused otherwise.

o Index Name        Filenumber: [___________]
o Index Number    Filenumber: [___________]
o Data Record

File Path: [____________________________________________________________________]

if the user selects Index Name, the static Filenumber and edit control right of Index Number were disabled (or hidden). The static Filenumber + edit control right of 'Index Name' were enabled and made visible (if not already).

if the user selects Index Number, the static Filenumber and edit control right of Index Name were disabled (or hidden).The static Filenumber + edit control right of 'Index Number' were enabled and made visible (if not already).

if the user selects Data Record all controls right of 'Index Name' and 'Index Number' were disabled (or hidden), since we have only one Datafile without any filenumber.

both edit controls should get a CString member variable and a CEdit member variable. the first allows to let the input field blank (what is not possible if you use an int member). the second makes it easier to disable or hide the control. i also recommend to add a CStatic member for all static text controls. this only will succeed if the ID is different from IDC_STATIC.

all static and edit controls need a unique ID specifier which is different from IDC_STATIC and should have a proper naming. the resource editor automatically adds a new #define statement to resource.h header file if you add a new control with an ID different from IDC_STATIC.

if yes, why can't I choose CString in above?
you need to change 'Category' value from 'Control' to 'Value'.

member variables either can be chosen for the control or for the value(contents). for example, if choosing 'Control' you define a CEdit member named 'm_edFilNumNameIndex'. such a member allows you to have a statement 'm_edFilNumNameIndex.EnableWindow(FALSE);' in order to disable the control for editing. if you define a 'value' member, the wizard would add a CString or int or double member variable, for example m_strFilNumNameIndex to your dialog class. this CString member variable would be filled with the input the user had entered to the edit control when you call UpdateData(TRUE); in your dialog cpp file. for initialization you could fill the member variable like 'm_strFilNumNameIndex = "123";' and then call 'UpdateData(FALSE);'. this statement would put the '123' to screen. such initializing would be done in the OnInitDialog member function or in a handler function hwn you want to write to screen rather than to read from screen.

Good day Sara,
I should have a group to the three Radio buttons, right?

Have a great weekend! Appreciations to your continual help!

sarabandeCommented:
yes. best you would first define a groupbox and name it like 'Choose Type of Binary File', then define the radio box buttons one after the other. it is important, that the IDC numbers of the radio buttons are consecutive (what would be automatically the case if you define them together), since you only would bind an int member variable only to the first radiobutton. the wizard then would automatically make that the member variable actually is 0 if the first radio button was selected, 1 if the second, and 2 if the third radio button was chosen. you may look into the resource.h to see whether the IDC numbers are fine (if not you can change them in resource.h though with care).

there is a trick with radio-Buttons. they were not handled singly but as a group. for that you have to right-click on the first radio button, choose properties and change Group property to True. this makes that only one button can be checked at a time.

see https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hab12t9w.aspx
for detecting selection change you either could have a OnBnClickedRadioxxxx for each button and handle it like

// this enumeration could be defined somewhere in your dialog header.
enum 
{
    Name_selected = 0,
    Number_selected = 1,
    Record_selected = 2
};

void CDlg::OnRadioBtnNameClicked()
{
   // check old value of Radio button selection
   if (m_radSelection != Name_selected)
   {
      m_radSelection = Name_selected;
      // now add code to handle the Event

   }
}

or you add an event handler for the Group manually:


 add this line to the message map of the dialog class (between BEGIN_MESSAGE_MAP and END_MESSAGE_MAP)

 ON_CONTROL_RANGE( BN_CLICKED, ID1, ID2, OnRadioBtnClicked )

Open in new window

ID1 is the ID of the first Radio button and ID2 the last one.

 declare the function OnRadioBtnClicked in the dialog header file:

 afx_msg void OnRadioBtnClicked(UINT radioID);

Open in new window


implement it in the Dialog source file:

 void CMyDialog::OnRadioBtnClicked(UINT radioID)
 {
      switch(radioID)
      {
      case IDC_RADIO_NAME:
      {
             // add here the code
             break;
      }
      case IDC_RADIO_NUMBER:
      {
             // add here the code
             break;
      }
      case IDC_RADIO_RECORD:
      {
             // add here the code
             break;
      }
     }
}

Open in new window


The ID represents the resource id of the control clicked and you can use it.

generally you should use an int member for the Radio Group as described previously. for initializing the Group you should add the following to OnInitDialog function:

BOOL CMyDlg::OnInitDialog()
{
    // current implementation
    ....
    // initialize member for Radio group
    m_radSelected = Name_selected;
    // send initial data to Screen
    UpdataData(FALSE);
    returm FALSE;
}

How to resolve these

Open in new window

using these codes

void CMFCApplication8Dlg::OnBnClickedRadioname()
{
	// TODO: Add your control notification handler code here
	CButton* pButton = (CButton*)GetDlgItem(IDC_RADIO_name);
	CWnd* pEdit = GetDlgItem(IDC_EDIT_name);
	int nCheck = pButton->GetCheck();

	CButton* pButton2 = (CButton*)GetDlgItem(IDC_RADIO_number);
	CWnd* pEdit2 = GetDlgItem(IDC_EDIT_number);
	int nCheck2 = pButton2->GetCheck();

	CButton* pButton3 = (CButton*)GetDlgItem(IDC_RADIO_data_rec);
	int nCheck3 = pButton3->GetCheck();

	if (nCheck == 1)
	{
		pEdit->EnableWindow(TRUE);
		pEdit2->EnableWindow(FALSE);
	}

	if (nCheck2 == 1)
	{
		pEdit->EnableWindow(FALSE);
		pEdit2->EnableWindow(TRUE);
	}

	if (nCheck3 == 1)
	{
		pEdit->EnableWindow(FALSE);
		pEdit2->EnableWindow(FALSE);

the 'm_radSelection' must be replaced by the int member variable which you added by wizard for the first radio button (and which is supposed to take the selection of the whole group of radio buttons).

the statement 'IDC_RADIO_name = Name_selected;' is wrong. it should be

m_radSelected = Name_selected;

Open in new window


note, instead of using GetDlgItem to get a pointer of the control, you also could create a member for the control by wizard in resource editor.

// if first radio button checked
if (m_radName.GetCheck() == TRUE)
{
     m_editNameFileNum.EnableWindow(TRUE);
     m_editNumberFileNum.EnableWindow(FALSE);
}
else if (m_radNumber.GetCheck() == TRUE)
{
     m_editNameFileNum.EnableWindow(FALSE);
     m_editNumberFileNum.EnableWindow(TRUE);
}
else if (m_radRecord.GetCheck() == TRUE)
{
     m_editNameFileNum.EnableWindow(FALSE);
     m_editNumberFileNum.EnableWindow(FALSE);
}

Open in new window


if you add member variables for each input control or radio group, you even don't need the button controls:

then your code could look much better and more readable like

// get data from screen
UpdateData(TRUE);
// the radio button selection is now in m_radSelection;
m_editNameFileNum.EnableWindow(m_radSelection == Name_selected);
m_editNumberFileNum.EnableWindow(m_radSelection == Number_selected);

Is it fine that I directly create the variables like

void CMFCApplication8Dlg::OnBnClickedRadioname()
{
	// TODO: Add your control notification handler code here
	CButton* pButton = (CButton*)GetDlgItem(IDC_RADIO_name);
	CWnd* pEdit = GetDlgItem(IDC_EDIT_name);
	int nCheck = pButton->GetCheck();

	CButton* pButton2 = (CButton*)GetDlgItem(IDC_RADIO_number);
	CWnd* pEdit2 = GetDlgItem(IDC_EDIT_number);
	int nCheck2 = pButton2->GetCheck();

	CButton* pButton3 = (CButton*)GetDlgItem(IDC_RADIO_data_rec);
	int nCheck3 = pButton3->GetCheck();
	...

Open in new window


instead of using the wizard to create the variables?

sarabandeCommented:
it is ok, but the wizard thing is much easier code and much more effective.

in resource editor right-click on first radio button, choose add member, choose category 'Value', choose int type, and name the control m_radSelection.

the rest will do the wizard.

in OnInitDialog you would set m_radSelection=0; and call UpdateData(FALSE); what would make that the first radio button was checked. if you do UpdateData(TRUE); the current selection will be put to m_radSelection.

sarabandeCommented:
if you want to define a member variable for the value in the wizard dialog 'add member variable', you have to choose 'value' from category combobox while the default is 'control'.

Good day Sara,

BTW, do you have any ideas which good C / C++ compiler does also work on Linux platform?

Have a good weekend!

sarabandeCommented:
you have to take gcc and perhaps qt for gui library and ide.

it has major differences to visual studio and mfc. so if you intend to port the gui project to linux, you may expect a long-time learning process. the savebinaryfile and readbinaryfile though easily can be ported if you simply replace the little parts where windows api was accessed.

Very sorry Sara.

I think I am having the similar codes like yours, below

void CMFCApplication8Dlg::OnBnClickedRadioname()
{
	// TODO: Add your control notification handler code here
	CButton* pButton = (CButton*)GetDlgItem(IDC_RADIO_name);
	CWnd* pEdit = GetDlgItem(IDC_EDIT_name);
	int nCheck = pButton->GetCheck();

	CButton* pButton2 = (CButton*)GetDlgItem(IDC_RADIO_number);
	CWnd* pEdit2 = GetDlgItem(IDC_EDIT_number);
	int nCheck2 = pButton2->GetCheck();

	CButton* pButton3 = (CButton*)GetDlgItem(IDC_RADIO_data_rec);
	int nCheck3 = pButton3->GetCheck();

	if (nCheck == 1)
	{
		pEdit->EnableWindow(TRUE);
		pEdit2->EnableWindow(FALSE);
	}

	if (nCheck2 == 1)
	{
		pEdit->EnableWindow(FALSE);
		pEdit2->EnableWindow(TRUE);
	}

	if (nCheck3 == 1)
	{
		pEdit->EnableWindow(FALSE);
		pEdit2->EnableWindow(FALSE);
	}
	...

can you please point it out, where I should adjust it, in above, to ensure only one radio button can be selected, each time?

i tried your rc file. i can read it but not change since my vs version is 2012 and not vs 2013.

i will make an own project with vs2012 where i will do the significant changes to your approach.

we can talk tomorrow how to overtake my changes to your project.

Sorry to my late replies these days as there was environment changes recently and now it is OK.

you have to open the rc file in text mode and replace the snippet of the IDD_MFCAPPLICATION8_DIALOG resource by the one i posted recently. you see that the error messages show small letters in resource ids where the resource.h has caapital letters. you also see that you have ids IDC_EDIT1 which are not part of the snippet i posted.

note, i can't give you my rc file since it was created with vs2008 what probably gives some conversion issues if you include it in vs2013.

Hi Sara,
when adjusting mfcapplication8.rc, which file to adjust below?

Many thanks

sarabandeCommented:
you need to open the rc file in text mode.

close the current resource editor windows.

then go to solution tree and locate the mfcapplication8.rc below resources folder.

right-click on it and choose open with ...  then select c++ text editor.

you will get a message whether you want to close the resource editor. say yes, and it will show the rc file as text file.

then locate the dialog resource bei searching for IDD_MFCAPPLICATION8_DIALOG.

alternatively:

locate the rc file in the solution tree. right-click on it and choose 'compile'. you will get errors if you have replaced the resource.h by the one i posted. if you click on the errors the rc file will be opened as text file.

sarabandeCommented:
you need to have either CMfcApplication8Dlg or CMFCApplication8Dlg but not mixed.

generally, c++ strictly is case-sensitive and errors like the ones you posted are simply to explain and simply to solve.

sarabandeCommented:
the CMfcApplication8Dlg was in the sources i posted. ther errors you posted are from mfcapplication8dlg.cpp and it seems that it was your cpp file since the compiler complains that CMFCApplication8Dlg was not defined.

you definitively have to use both header and cpp from my sources and rename your sources such they were not used anymore in the solution. however, it would make sense to rename the class name to CMFCApplication8Dlg cause this name was used also in some other sources of the solution.

open (my) mfcapplication8dlg.h and do ctrl+h. then replace CMfcApplication8Dlg by CMFCApplication8Dlg for all occurrences.

then do the same for (my) MfcApplication8Dlg.cpp.

note, altenatively to renaming your source files and copy my files to the project folder, you could copy the contents of my file to your files. then, change class name to capital 'MFC' and then do a rebuild all to get the stdafx.cpp newly built.

I can't download visual studio community before friday. but i did the following with success which you could repeat step by step:

1. close solution in visual studio 2013
2. open folder mfcapplication8 with explorer and step to parent folder
3. rename  folder mfcapplication8 to mfcapplication8_old
4. in visual studio create new mfc application project MfcApplication8 (note case in 'Mfc')
4a. choose application type dialog-based
5. close resource view without changing anything
6. get resource.h into clipboard from below (select all and ctrl+c)

14b. click on the error and comment "#include binaryfile.h" for the moment
14c. compile and build again, it should be fine now
15. copy binaryfile.h and binaryfile.cpp from old mfc project to current folder mfcapplication8
15a. if the filenames were differently, rename them (also the #include statement in the binaryfile.cpp)
16. right-click on MfcApplication8 project in solution tree and choose 'add ... existing item'

Many thanks Sara I attach objects from previous project in the following

I know I can copy the codes fro m previous project. But can I have the details to re-create the objects highlighted?
0
sarabandeCommented:
you would get the structures index_name, index_number, item, rec_struc from binaryfile.h. so the only thing you have to do is to copy the binaryfile.h and binaryfile.cpp either to the new project folder, or, to a folder which is parallel to the new project folder. then add the files (add ... existing item ...) to your new project as described in step 15 to step 19.

if you are not sure whether the binaryfile.h and binaryfile.cpp are good, post them here in a code block window.

Many thanks Sara.
should I choose add "Class" or "Resource" to add the file, if I right-click the project?
0
sarabandeCommented:
you have to choose the Solution Explorer and select the 'Project' MfcApplication8. the project is below 'MfcApplication8 Solution'.

then right-click and 'Add' -> 'Existing Item...' and an explorer-like window opens.
then navigate to the folder where binaryfile.h and binaryfile.cpp are located. it should be the MfcApplication8 folder or a folder on same level as MfcApplication8. if you do the latter, you would need to add the folder as relative path for all configurations into the Configuration Properties - VC++ Directories - Include Directories like "..\BinaryFileFolder". the .. is the parent folder.

Sorry, is it to add the files by choosing the following

26
or not? thanks Sara

sarabandeCommented:
you still are in the class view. you have to go to solution explorer which normally is availble via a tab parallel to class view and resource view, but also can be selected by 'View' menu.

the class view shows classes, structures and global variables while the solution explorer shows files.

Good day Sara,

I've finished all the steps given by you on Jun24 and is able to compile the project fine, excluding these 2 steps

11. select mfcapplication8dlg.h from below and put contents into clipboard:
12. select mfcapplication8dlg.cpp from below and put contents into clipboard:

Open in new window

can I know if I should replace the relevant codes of the project per what you've provided, by the above 2 steps?

Have a great weekend!
0
sarabandeCommented:
yes, you would exchange the full contents of both files. and if you have taken care that the class name was MfcApplication8Dlg  (with Mfc beginning with a capital M followed by small letters fc) it indeed should compile and build just fine.

Many thanks Sara.
Do you mean I should put the codes of both MfcApplication8Dlg.h and MfcApplication8Dlg.cpp, per what you've provided through the above 2 steps?

HuaMin ChenProblem resolverAuthor Commented:
Hi Sara,
I've already put the codes of both MfcApplication8Dlg.h and MfcApplication8Dlg.cpp into the project, while I've replaced any occurrence of MfcApplication8 to MfcApplication9. when building the whole solution, I encounter this
Error	1	error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'BinaryFile.h': No such file or directory	c:\mfcapplication9\mfcapplication9\mfcapplication9dlg.cpp	8	1	MfcApplication9
	2	IntelliSense: cannot open source file "BinaryFile.h"	c:\MfcApplication9\MfcApplication9\MfcApplication9Dlg.cpp	8	1	MfcApplication9

Open in new window

while I've added BinaryFile.h into the project as one existed item, on solution explorer.
0
sarabandeCommented:
for including the binaryfile.h it is not enough to add it to the project but you also have to add the folder where the files reside to the include directory settings below vc directories. i already told you that a few comments before.

add it as a relative path for both release and debug configuration.

alternatively you may delete the binaryfile.h and binaryfile.cpp from project tree, then move the files to the project folder, and add them again to the project.

Sara

sarabandeCommented:
while I've replaced any occurrence of MfcApplication8 to MfcApplication9.
why not name the project 'ShowBinaryFile' or 'ViewBinaryFile'? do you really think that you ever will go back to mfxcapplicationx again or can draw any benefit from it?

for including the binaryfile.h it is not enough to add it to the project but you also have to add the folder where the files reside to the include directory settings below vc directories. i already told you that a few comments before.

add it as a relative path for both release and debug configuration.
Sorry Sara. Is there anything got misunderstood, as within the project, I have these 2 files

BinaryFile.cpp
BinaryHeader.h

and should the relevant header file name be "BinaryHeader.h" instead?

actually you may name it as you like, though normally a header and its cpp have the same name.

binaryfile.h is a good name  and binaryheader.h is a pleonasm.
