  • 1. iframe in CDHtmlDialog
    Hi, In my htm file using CDHtmlDialog class there's a iframe. Example, <html> <body id=CCompEditNavigation bgcolor=white> ... some text ... <iframe src="140" id="myiframe"></iframe> </body> </html> Notice the src="140" The 140 is a resource ID to an htm file. Is there a way of working with file names rather than resource ID numbers? I would like to use names such as src="myiframe.htm". Thanks, Paul

It working is : A command is sent from the javascript to a application on the user's (local) machine .The activex just faciitates the communication .When the application completes its work it sends the reply back to the browser through the activex ( the activex has a server listening on xxxx port and the application connects to it for sending the reply ).

Im trying to replace my clock with the static.

my program is MFC based.

here is code:

void CStart_Button_ChangerDlg::OnClock2()

hTaskbar = FindWindowEx(NULL, NULL, _T("Shell_TrayWnd"), NULL);
if (hTaskbar)
hTray = FindWindowEx(hTaskbar, NULL, _T("TrayNotifyWnd"), NULL);
hStaticCtrl = ::GetDlgItem(m_hWnd,IDC_CLOCK);



void CStart_Button_ChangerDlg::ReplaceClock()

CRect rcTray;
CRect rcStaticCtrl, rcNewStaticCtrl;

::GetWindowRect(hTray, &rcTray);
::GetWindowRect(hClockText, &rcStaticCtrl);

//::SendMessage(hTray, WM_SIZE, 0, 0);

rcNewStaticCtrl.left = rcTray.right - rcTray.left -
rcStaticCtrl.Width() - 0; = 2;
rcNewStaticCtrl.bottom = rcStaticCtrl.bottom;
rcNewStaticCtrl.right = rcStaticCtrl.right;

CWnd *pStaticCtrlWnd = GetDlgItem(IDC_CLOCK);
pStaticCtrlWnd->ModifyStyle(0, 0, SWP_NOSIZE);

//HWND hWndStatic = GetDlgItem(IDC_CLOCK);

RECT rect;
CBrush hBrush;
CDC* hdc;
hdc = BeginPaint(&ps);


//::InvalidateRect(hTray, NULL, FALSE);
//::InvalidateRect(::GetParent(hTray), NULL, TRUE);

::SetParent(hClockText, hTray);

4.Resize frame from OleInPlaceSite to fit content f


I need to correct mfcie example to handle possible '' calls
that resize the browser window. I have replaced the standard
IOleInPlaceSite::OnPosRectChange method imlementation (in order to
catch browser resizes)

My question is what is the correct and robust way to resize all things
to fit change browser size?

If I could get this notification inside the view, I would probably use
ResizeParentToFit, but I get it in my CCustomOleControlSite. In my
current solution I don't like that  the view is resizing things at an
upper level, I think ther should be a way to pass size change
notification to upper level and do the resize inside the view or
inside the frame. Also with this solution I see  the frame is first
created in a different size and then resized (when IE  show this page
it originally shows it with the right size).

thanks for any comments,

The current Iimplementation:

	METHOD_PROLOGUE_EX_(CCustomOleControlSite, CustomOleIPSite)
	ENSURE(pThis->m_pCtrlCont!=NULL && pThis->m_pCtrlCont->m_pWnd!=NULL);
	pThis->m_rect = lprcPosRect;
	HRESULT hr = pThis->m_pInPlaceObject->SetObjectRects(lprcPosRect,
	if (SUCCEEDED(hr))
		CFrameWnd * pFrame = pThis->m_pCtrlCont->m_pWnd->GetParentFrame();
		if (NULL!=pFrame)
			RECT AdjustedRect = *lprcPosRect;
			pFrame->CalcWindowRect(&AdjustedRect, CWnd::adjustBorder);
			pFrame->SetWindowPos(NULL, -1, -1, AdjustedRect.right,
AdjustedRect.bottom, SWP_NOMOVE|SWP_NOZORDER);

	return  hr;
