    The CAlexfStaticHistogram control is a lightweight class suitable for displaying histograms. You can add new columns, additional text, change text orientation and direction of motion (if you change data at runtime).

    Using CAlexfStaticHistogram in a dialog is quite simple:

    1. Include CAlexfStaticHistogram.h in your dialog class' header file.
    2. Add member variables of type CAlexfStaticHistogram for every static text control you want to subclass.
    3. Subclass the static text controls in your dialog's OnInitDialog() method and set the controls' style.
    m_sHistogram.SetTextWidth(50); // Set text width (0 - no text)
    m_sHistogram.SetTextLines(5);  // Set number of text lines (0 - none)
    m_sHistogram.text[0] = "Z1";   // Set text (too easy to create special
    m_sHistogram.text[1] = "Zz2";  // function for that)
    // ...
    m_sHistogram.SetMaxValue(99.9) // Set relatival maximum
    m_sHistogram.Add(50);          // Add new column to histogram

    If you want "dynamic" histogram - you can owerride, for example, OnTimer() and simply call:
