Thread: Rulers in UI

    Rulers in UI


    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?

    Hi,

    You might get a better response to this question on the
    UI Design discussion. Perhaps someone may be able to
    point you to a Third Party Control that does the trick.
    If not you may have to write the control yourself.
