Most MFC introductory guides show you how to generate code with Microsoft's AppWizard and then modify it -- but give you little understanding of how to program in MFC. This book is different: it starts with the MFC fundamentals you need to really know what you're doing -- and also takes you much further than most competitive books. By the time you're introduced to the AppWizard, you'll have the knowledge to take full advantage of it! Start by understanding the fundamentals of object-oriented programming, the essential concepts underlying MFC, the structure of MFC programs, and the Document/View architecture. Master not only MFC's common interface controls, but also more advanced concepts, including building ActiveX controls and database access. Introduction to MFC Programming contains dozens of diagrams and programs -- from snippets to sizable programs designed to demonstrate key software engineering and database access techniques.
