BCGControlBar Pro for MFC
CBCGPButton

Detailed Description

The CBCGPButton class provides the extended functionality of the standard Windows button controls. It includes the new look & feel styles, the various ways to align text, ability to combine an image and text, set cursor and tool tip.

In addition, the CBCGPURLLinkButton derived from the CBCGPButton supports creation of Internet-style links, as well as CBCGPColorButton specially aimed to create Office-style color-filled button controls and color pickers.

The new look & feel styles are 3D, flat, semi-flat and no border styles. The text may be aligned at the left, top and center positions and when combined with image you can control at the run-time its appearance as text and image, text only and image only. You can assign a specific mouse cursor to be displayed when it is moved over the button.

You can create a button control either from a dialog template as a regular button or directly in your code. In both cases, first call the constructor CBCGPButton to construct the CBCGPButton object; then call the Create() member function to create the Windows control and attach it to the CBCGPButton object. When you're using the ClassWizard to associate this control with a CDialog - derived class member you need to replace the CButton type to the CBCGPButton type.

If you want to handle Windows notification messages, such as BN_CLICKED, sent by a button control to its parent (usually a class derived from CDialog), add to the CDialog - derived object a message-map entry and message-handler member function for each message. The notifications sent by a CBCGPButton object are the same as those sent by a CButton object.
