Title: tips & tricks in the Wiki
Post by: fussl on June 13, 2009, 11:11:58 am
Hi.
I still like Pelles C. Anytime i have to create a console application for windows, i use Pelles C to build a small and fast result. fine! Over the years i tried to create windows gui apps as well. but i ran into questions, i cant answer. for instance:
- how to insert ma own buttons in a toolbar?
- how to fill tabs in a tabcontrol?
.. and many more.

I have read all the linked websites with lots of good tips and tricks. But i did not find a answer for my questions.
i would like to create a tips and tricks section in your wiki and place my questions there. I asume, many other new users will run into the same questions.
Hopefully someone is able to answer the questions. Also the program authors may see, where most of the users habe questions.

What du you think about?

Hello Fussl,

I have an 2 articles and source code (Pelles C projects)  posted on Code Project:

how to fill tabs in a tab control:

http://www.codeproject.com/KB/winsdk/Win32SDK_C_TabCtrl.aspx? (http://www.codeproject.com/KB/winsdk/Win32SDK_C_TabCtrl.aspx?)

how to create an auto complete combobox by sub classing the control:

http://www.codeproject.com/KB/winsdk/Win32AutoCompleteComboBox.aspx (http://www.codeproject.com/KB/winsdk/Win32AutoCompleteComboBox.aspx)

The other day I stumbled upon this over at MSDN:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb775794(VS.85).aspx (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb775794(VS.85).aspx)

It has a section titled "Creating a Combo Box Toolbar" and shows how to insert components into a toolbar.
