How do i go about creating an app in mfc where there is a series of buttons and when you press one it loads an image, then if you press another one a different image loads?
i am using vc++ 2008 to do this
Well you need to give us a starting point as to what you have, my suggestion is that you have an image placeholder thingy, and then change the source of it when each button is pressed, ofcourse I can't use any technical names because I dis-like MFC :)
Did you build the dialog with the vs2008 resource editor?
If yes, click the right mouse button while selecting the dialog in the resource editor and create a dialog class. After that double click the button and create an event handler as member of your new dialog class.
Im affraid im a little lost at the moment. I tried creating a new class, which i assume you meant a c++ class. But once ive done that and double clicked the button i dont quite know where to go, or what i should write in the class.
What i want is for each button to display a different picture so what would need to go in the class for selecting each pic?
you need to write an event handler for each of those buttons. Inside the event handler is where you put the code to load and display the image you want. As I recall, to create an event handler function for a button just right-click the button and you will see the option(s).
