CMFCVisualManager Class

Provides support for changing the appearance of your application at a global level. The CMFCVisualManager class works together with a class that provides instructions to draw the GUI controls of your application using a consistent style. These other classes are referred to as visual managers and they inherit from CMFCBaseVisualManager.

For more detail see the source code located in the VC\atlmfc\src\mfc folder of your Visual Studio installation.

Remarks

Because the CMFCVisualManager class controls the application's GUI, each application can have either one instance of a CMFCVisualManager, or one instance of a class derived from CMFCVisualManager. Your application can also function without a CMFCVisualManager. Use the static method GetInstance to obtain a pointer to the current CMFCVisualManager-derived object.

To change the appearance of your application you must use other classes that provide methods for drawing all of the visual elements of your application. Some examples of these classes are CMFCVisualManagerOfficeXP Class, CMFCVisualManagerOffice2003 Class, and CMFCVisualManagerOffice2007 Class. When you want to change the appearance of your application, pass one of these visual managers into the method SetDefaultManager. For an example that demonstrates how your application can mimic the appearance of Microsoft Office 2003, see CMFCVisualManagerOffice2003 Class.

All of the drawing methods are virtual. This enables you to create a custom visual style for the GUI of your application. If you want to create your own visual style, derive a class from one of the visual manager classes and override the drawing methods that you want to change.

Example

This sample demonstrates how to instantiate the standard and custom CMFCVisualManager objects.

void CMFCSkinsApp::SetSkin (int iIndex)
{   // destroy the current visual manager
    if (CMFCVisualManager::GetInstance () != NULL)
    {
        delete CMFCVisualManager::GetInstance ();
    }
    switch (iIndex)
    {
    case 0:
        CMFCVisualManager::GetInstance ();
        // create the standard visual manager
        break;
    case 1:
        new CMyVisualManager ();
        // create the first custom visual manager
        break;
    case 2:
        new CMacStyle ();
        // create the second custom visual manager
        break;
    }
    // access the manager and set it properly
    CMFCVisualManager::GetInstance ()->SetLook2000 ();
    CMFCVisualManager::GetInstance ()->RedrawAll ();
}

Example

The following example demonstrates how to retrieve the default values of a CMFCVisualManager object. This code snippet is part of the Tasks Pane sample.

int m_nHMargin;
