    Thumbs up ATL Composite Control not displaying at design time

    Hello gurus ,

    I have created a composite ActiveX (control not using MFC) it has couple of buttons,comboboxes, tree views,etc. I am not able to display this control in Design time. I am using VS2008. I can see the control loading successfully at run time but it does not display at design time. I just see a text "ATL Composite control" on the window. Any one encountered the same problem. Any help appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Sudeep Gangadharan

    At "design time" just draw something which suggests the control's contents (a bitmap, for example).

    Cool Re: ATL Composite Control not displaying at design time

    Many thanks ovidiucucu,

    I have been mulling on this approach but didn proceed bcos i wasnt convinced that this operation is not possible in design time. I had created the same control on C# and the view persisted at the design time. I think there should be some way to work around this problem...

    Thank you again for your interest.

    Best regards,

    It is your choice.
    You have posted in the C++ and WinAPI forum, isn't it?

    Any one encountered the same problem.
    This is not a problem. This is the way the resource editor works. It notifies your control about running design time mode.

    Well, what's your real problem? You need to see the controls layout at design time? Just place them onto a borderless dialog window and make the latter a composit control's child window.
    Best regards,

    My everytime's dream is a resource editor which can play "Avatar" 3D and full HD.
