Recommended Posts

Hi fellow programmers, Does someone know how to create an code-template in Visual C++ v6.0? For eample: I want to be able to start a new project and then just click on my template, then i don''t have to type the whole code again, like when programming a window-application then i do not have to type in the whole basic-code to initialize the window-code i.e. creating the class, openeing the class structure, creating the window and the event handler. What i want is: Just click on new project and then click on like: Window_Base_Code Please help me!!!

Hi,

What I do take a few minutes rather a single click, but it may be applied to any IDE I think :

1. create your template with your minimal code
2. Store it somewhere

3. Now, for a new project, create an empty one, and change the settings as what you need (compiler option, libraries, etc)
4. Copy/paste your template inside the project directory
5. Add them to the project, et voila !

Note : to skip specifying libraries, you might put some #pragma-like directive to indicate which libraries to use. Since I discovered his trick in this forum, all I need to change is the location of the exe file and check RTTI.

Hi,

That''s is exactly how i work.
I want to just click and go!, that is why the template!

So your solution is not the one i''m looking for.

But thanks for your replay..

You can create a custom appwizard, using existing code as a template (slightly tweaked). It''s not easy, but it''s not rocket science either.

Just look up "custom appwizard" in the MSDN.
