  • Drawing rectangles with the mouse

    Would anyone be so kind as to point me to an example of drawing rectangles on a DDT created form(Rectangle drawing doesn't have to be DDT, I am just creating the forms and other stuff using DDT) using the rodent - a.k.a the mouse? I have made several attenpts to find an example, but haven't had much luck.

    Thanks,
    Adam

    There is an excellent file at PB's ftp site containing a lot of
    samples from Charles Petzold's book, Programming Windows 95.
    Download it, unzip it and check out the samples for chapter 6,
    called Blokout1 and Blokout2.

      please look at this demo for drawing objects. if you want
      to use the mouse to draw a window i.e. button, you can extract
      the code from this.

        Thanks guys, I downloaded both the petzold.zip file and the shapes example and they are both good sources of information.
