Re: Question about creating chart using CreateWnd

Good afternoon, Frank 

I added the article's code to my app, and it didnt work. Looking at the


static CLSID const clsid = { 0xFFF90AC1, 0x4659, 0x11d1, { 0x8f, 0xd4,

0x0, 0xaa, 0x0, 0xbd, 0x9, 0x1c } };

_bstr_t license = "<<my string>>";

IClassFactory2 *pFactory2;



IChartFXPtr pChartFX;

if (SUCCEEDED(hr = CoGetClassObject(clsid, CLSCTX_INPROC_SERVER, NULL,

IID_IClassFactory2, (LPVOID FAR *) &pFactory2)))

hr = pFactory2->CreateInstanceLic(NULL, NULL, IID_IUnknown, license,

(LPVOID FAR *) &pUnk);

if (SUCCEEDED(hr))

pChartFX = pUnk;





long l = GetWindowLong(m_hWnd, GWL_WNDPROC);


m_pChartFX->CreateWnd((long)this->m_hWnd, IDC_CHART1,

rc.left, rc.top - 5, (rc.right- rc.left), (rc.bottom - rc.top), WS_CHILD


m_hwndChartFX = (HWND)m_pChartFX->hWnd;



The code is throwing an abnormal program termination on the actual CreateWnd

call. CreateInstance comes back fine. Any other suggestions? Also I

wanted to ask how long is the license string? I did not have a license

string printed on my license card and when I run About Chart FX 98, it

seems the license string may be cut off at the end. My license string I get

is 52 characters long.

Thanks for the help!
