I want to implement an UI with horizontal and vertical rulers. Each ruler
would have a (niddle) indicator which update dynamically with the coordinates
of the mouse's hotpoint. (I have seen this type of UI in some ACAD products).
I used a (MFC) DocView structure with four fixed split views and made the
top left corner view redundent. This method works but has several drawbacks:
it flicks a bit, the scale text on the rulers are poor, especially on the
vertical ruler, and the rulers look a bit blend.

I may have to settle for this simple solution, but can anyone point me a
direction for an alternative?
