AfxGetApp problem

AfxGetApp problem

AfxGetApp problem


an MFC question. Within my CMainFrame class I want to access my App class methods. I've tried the following code:

CPOSAnywhereClientNTApp *app = dynamic_cast<CPOSAnywhereClientNTApp*>(::AfxGetApp());

IPAddress commandLineIPAddress = app->getTargetIPAddress();

if (!commandLineIPAddress.isNull())
     // do something

I should get back a value from getTargetIPAddress() but I'm not. Does the code above make sense? Is the <CPOSAnywhereClientNTApp> legal? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.


RE: AfxGetApp problem

For MFC applications
You can easily change the appearance of the visual style by the popular Microsoft products like office and visual studio. Parsing an   XML file describes the visual styles. It can be accomplished by proceeding in the following way.

class CMyVisualManagerOffice2007 : public CMFCVisualManagerOffice2007
       virtual ~CMyVisualManagerOffice2007();
       virtual BOOL IsOwnerDrawCaption() { return m_bCaptionOn && CMFCVisualManagerOffice2007::IsOwnerDrawCaption(); }
       bool m_bCaptionOn;
