WTL 9 and visual studio 2013 community edition



I've tried compiling a few of the WTL 9 sample applications with visual studio 2013 community edition.

Since community edition reported to be a free version of professional, should this work?

First line of compiler output:

c:\program files (x86)\microsoft visual studio 12.0\vc\atlmfc\include\atlwin.h(2084): error C2065: 'HMONITOR' : undeclared identifier

Express 2013 needed these hacks, is the same needed for community edition?

Re: Digest Number 3025



Nenad:

Yes. There are valid concern with CPL. We didn't realize that WTL hasn't change for so long!

CPL was official deprecated awhile ago.  So it is probably not going to go well with companies care about license status. License author of CPL replaced it with EPL. The main change is removal of the patent retaliation in CPL besides cosmetic changes per FSF.

Another Microsoft open source project WiX decided a while ago to go from CPL to MS-RL instead

It is probably best keep the CPL for a period so that companies and development teams already using don't get the rude awakening by a sudden change they don't have control. Then layout the transition plan and hear it from the community about choices. The owner and contributors surely have the final say.

Hi Jed,

Thanks!

Since WTL is not distributed by MS any more, I thought that we can continue
using just CPL on SourceForge. We can still use MS-PL, if needed.

Is there any specific issue why you are asking this? I would be interested
to hear it.

Cheers,
Nenad

p.s. I don't know what was the problem with posting - even this one
appeared after 4 days.

Licensing for WTL 9.0?



Hello,


Congratulations again on the release of WTL 9.0.


I have a question about licensing:  Is WTL 9.0 distributed under both the Microsoft Public License (MS-PL) and the Common Public License (CPL) as older versions were?  The Sourceforge download page references only the CPL.  The Wikipedia page has been updated to state the latest stable release is 9.0, and still references both the MS-PL and CPL, but this does not strike me as definitive.


Thanks in advance for your help.


Best Regards,


Jed


PS.  I attempted to post this a little while back, but it does not seem to have worked, so I am trying again. Apologies if it ends up doubled.

suggestions for WTL ribbon implementation



Here are some comments on the atlribbon.h implementation. In general it is a great piece of work but there are a few bits and bobs left to make it perfect!

1. ShowRibbonUI should take into account any REGULAR menu that the ribbon hid and restore it after the menu is re-enabled. The current implementation only works with a rebar/commandbar

2. ShowRibbonUI should take a parameter NOT to hide the toolbar (e.g. I have an addressbar that I want to keep alongside the ribbon). This can be handled in UpdateLayout by converting the toolbar/rebar into CCS_NOPARENTALIGN and manually positioning it below the ribbon.

3. m_bWin7Fix is a nasty workaround that unfortunately cannot be avoided (I've been trying for a couple of days but I gave up :). However the code should also be patched for windows 8; all the checks for IsWin7() should be converted to IsWin7OrLater() otherwise there will be problems in win8

I hope Alain Rist is reading :)

tooltip paint problem in win8.1



I have a fully "owner drawn" tooltip control I use to show popup help in my programs. I create it with WS_POPUP | TTS_NOPREFIX styles and nothing else fancy

 

then I take over completely its painting overriding WM_PAINT and WM_PRINTCLIENT to show my own visuals whenever the tooltip pops up

 

all this is working fine in older windows (with or without visual styles), but with windows 8.1 it fails to paint properly, intermittently. It looks like this

 

http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=15hedth&s=8#.U4yXHUr6i01 

parts of the tooltip don't draw and remain transparent. Around 70% of the time it paints ok but sometimes it doesn't (it always fails in a different way)

 

I know that newer windows versions don't use WM_PAINT as older windows but I wonder why it would fail intermittently like that?
