Show me some votes from people that seriously want it and I might complete the port. Thanks! Jan -- ManiaC++ Jan Knepper But as for me and my household, we shall use Mozilla... www.mozilla.org

I'm not in need, but am just testing the compatibility for MFCSTL with DMC++,
and
there're a couple of features that it doesn't support, that's all. ;)

That would be nice to have, no doubt about it, though I don't REAllY need it since I have MS VS :) ~/gnf.pt

One option is to get the MS SDK downloads (free from MSDN web site) and use the
source code to patch what you need.  I have run into MFC 4.2 vs 6.0 problems
(related to CString::Replace or CPictureHolder for example (see my previous
posts)) but I was able to add the functionality I needed with the source from
MS.  Add a few compiler directives and you can compile in either DM or MS.

Really... For me it is not such much a matter *how* but *when*

I have converted MFC 4.21 to Symantec C++ and later Digital Mars C++. 
Have done the same with libraries from Dundas, Codejock, Rogue Wave, 
etc... The conversion itself is not a problem it is just that I just do 
not have the time anymore, especially since we decided to go with 
wxWidgets in the future and not with MFC...

No doubt that wxWidgets is a powerfull GUI toolkit, but whatever we like it or
not MFC still remains a major player. It would be nice to have MFC v6.0/v7.0
available in DM.

I vote for the upgrade --  There are lots of functions in 6 that aren't 
supported in 4.x that make life easier for programming  (and are used 
regularly in many canned code projects) --
and thanks for your making DMC work!

Yes -- DMCnot having MFC 6 is why i gavd up on DMC -- give me 6!!

Actually I already have MFC 6 with my VC++6, will it work with the
DM compiler?

hmmm, I'm clueless about patching for MFC6  - is there a way for me
to explore this without unduly burdening someone else? DMC still
has life in it for me if I can figure a way to use MFC 6.

What do you need from MFC6.  I switched from MS MFC6 to DMC and I
only needed to address extra functions in the CString class and a
few #defines for some control classes.  Otherwise the code was fine.
Of course there are MS specific things like #import that you won't
have, but usually you can code around that.  Also the debugger is
les user friendly, but I don't make too many mistakes.  :)
