    Re: Array of buttons in VC++

    I don;t understand what you mean by common names but it is very easy if you keep a member integer vairable in your button class and in the OnClick handler put a check on that integer variable you can determine which button was clicked....

    What exactly are you trying to do? You want to have several buttons having the same handler? You can use ON_COMMAND_RANGE macro to map a range of command IDs to the same handler.

    Arrow I need to control set of buttons in aloop

    I have written a common handler for the set of buttons. But, i need to address them like

    m_Button[i][j].SetWindowText("XXXX");
    in a loop. i did it by changing the declaration of button as CButton m_Button[5][5];
    but after that i could not go to class-wizard.

    Here an example for an array of 2 buttons.

    In the header declare:
    Code:
    typedef CButton CMyButton[2];
    and use it in AFX_DATA
    Code:
    //{{AFX_DATA(CGeneralTestDlgDlg)
    enum { IDD = IDD_GENERALTESTDLG_DIALOG };
    CMyButton  m_button;
    //}}AFX_DATA
    In the source file write the DoDataExchange like this:
    Code:
    void CGeneralTestDlgDlg::DoDataExchange(CDataExchange* pDX)
    {
      CButton &but1 = m_button[0];
      CButton &but2 = m_button[1];
      CDialog::DoDataExchange(pDX);
      //{{AFX_DATA_MAP(CGeneralTestDlgDlg)
      DDX_Control(pDX, IDC_BUTTON2, but1);
      DDX_Control(pDX, IDC_BUTTON1, but2);
      //}}AFX_DATA_MAP
    }
    Now you will be able to use the class wizzard and have buttons array.
