VS2005 / MFC WTF





  • Yay grammar! 



  • I'm sorry, am I missing something, or is this a WTF just because of the minor case of poor grammar?



  •  Whoopsie typo!



  • The WTF is that VS can't just edit Resource.h via the resource editor...I had to go in and do it manually.

    As well as the odd usage of an ampersand in the dialog box.

    And I suppose this WTF is compunded by the fact that VS gave me a non-unique doc template resource ID to begin with (it overlapped a context menu, causing all sorts of hell to break loose).  Isn't it supposed to keep track of those things?



  • Why are you still using MFC?

    It wou too much of a pain in the neck to rewrite this application in winforms.  Plus, MFC is actually sort of nice if you app fits the doc/view architecure nicely (which this one does).

    I count my blessings that we're using MFC and not that homegrown "cross-platform" UI crap that older versions of our commercial product used.  When your program is over 2500 files and several million lines of code, you don't go changing UI infrastructures all willy-nilly.  (I know, I know, ideally it shouldn't be that hard.  But still.)

    What about "is used in more than once"?

    Yeah, I use it more than once in the .rc (which is true for most resource ID's, BTW), but can only be #define'd once in resource.h, and thus VS should be able to change that easily.  Usage of the ID should not affect what I was trying to do.

    ****WOOSH!!!****

    I was actually referring to the wording - read it carefully.
