================================================================================ MICROSOFT FOUNDATION CLASS LIBRARY : ArticleSubmitter Project Overview =============================================================================== The application wizard

has created this ArticleSubmitter application for you. This application not only demonstrates the basics of using the Microsoft Foundation Classes but is also a starting point for writing your application. This file contains a summary of what you will find in each of the files that make up your ArticleSubmitter application. ArticleSubmitter.vcproj This is the main project file for VC++ projects generated using an applicati on wizard. It contains information about the version of Visual C++ that generated the f ile, and information about the platforms, configurations, and project features select ed with the application wizard. ArticleSubmitter.h This is the main header file for the application. It includes other project specific headers (including Resource.h) and declares the CArticleSubmitterApp application class. ArticleSubmitter.cpp This is the main application source file that contains the application class CArticleSubmitterApp. ArticleSubmitter.rc This is a listing of all of the Microsoft Windows resources that the program uses. It includes the icons, bitmaps, and cursors that are stored in the RES subdirectory. This file can be directly edited in Microsoft Visual C++. Your project resources are in 1033. res\ArticleSubmitter.ico This is an icon file, which is used as the application's icon. This icon is included by the main resource file ArticleSubmitter.rc. res\ArticleSubmitter.rc2 This file contains resources that are not edited by Microsoft Visual C++. You should place all resources not editable by the resource editor in this file. ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// The application wizard creates one dialog class: ArticleSubmitterDlg.h, ArticleSubmitterDlg.cpp - the dialog These files contain your CArticleSubmitterDlg class. This class defines the behavior of your application's main dialog. The dialog's template is in ArticleSubmitter.rc, which can be edited in Microsoft Visual C++. ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Help Support: hlp\ArticleSubmitter.hpj This file is the help project file used by the help compiler to create your application's help file. hlp\*.bmp

These are bitmap files required by the standard HELP file topics for Microsoft Foundation Class Library standard commands. hlp\*.rtf These files contain the standard help topics for standard MFC commands and screen objects. ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Other Features: ActiveX Controls The application includes support to use ActiveX controls. Windows Sockets The application has support for establishing communications over TCP/IP netw orks. ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Other standard files: StdAfx.h, StdAfx.cpp These files are used to build a precompiled header (PCH) file named ArticleSubmitter.pch and a precompiled types file named StdAfx.obj. Resource.h This is the standard header file, which defines new resource IDs. Microsoft Visual C++ reads and updates this file. ArticleSubmitter.manifest Application manifest files are used by Windows XP to describe an applica tions dependency on specific versions of Side-by-Side assemblies. The loader u ses this information to load the appropriate assembly from the assembly cache or private from the application. The Application manifest maybe included for redis tribution as an external .manifest file that is installed in the same folder as th e application executable or it may be included in the executable in the form of a reso urce. ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Other notes: The application wizard uses "TODO:" to indicate parts of the source code you should add to or customize. If your application uses MFC in a shared DLL, and your application is in a language other than the operating system's current language, you will need to copy the corresponding localized resources MFC70XXX.DLL from the Microsoft Visual C++ CD-ROM under the Win\System directory to your computer's system or system32 directory, and rename it to be MFCLOC.DLL. ("XXX" stands for the language abbreviation. For example, MFC70DEU.DLL contains resources translated to German.) If you don't do this, some of the UI elements of your application will remain in the language of the operating system. /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
