Until today I didn't have access to an XP box without VS2008 and the Feature Pack installed, but after getting the program to run I find that it still has problems. Sorry to all who have tried in vane to get it to work correctly. Before I publish the next article in the series, I'll see if I can't come up with a resolution to the existing problems.
I've submitted an updated Binaries Zip file including a Windows installer msi file. This should install the necessary VC9 dlls along with the program. If you want to get the install quicker, send your email to email@example.com.
Thanks for your interest,
I hate to say it, but when I had that full beard, too many people told me I looked like Jerry Garcia. Maybe that could be it. I have since gone to a goatee and the comments have stopped. Seriously, I doubt we've met, I've lived in Marin County, California my entire adult life, and have been some what of a recluse in the software community. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the article, there are more to come.
Well I couldn't run it, even after installing the link you posted above, it still complains about "ordinal 8580 could not be located in the dynamic link library mfc90.dll". I tried rebooting and still got the same message. This is Windows XP sp2.

First, thank you a lot for your articles !!, They provide lots of knowledge that I want to learn in these days:
1) MFC design pattern (well, since its MFC, Model-View-Controller is the thing)
2) using property grid control.
Right now I am working with Feature Pack and wondering how I should implement property grid control. I have my implementation and it works, but I am not sure about the design. So I have been looking for some good tutorials (with some code ) about design pattern in MFC and maybe then I can use property grid control properly.
I am just thrilled about your work and thinking if I can adopt your approach to my project. Apparently I miss your introduction article but I will start from there.
Again, thank you for sharing your knowledge. I know that the universe is still on my side and it will send someone to teach me what I need to know.
I'm glad you enjoyed the first two articles. It's nice to see someone who may actually use the Framework. And yes, the next article, The SBJ MVC Framework - The Views, Design, Explorer and PropertyGrid will go into detail describing how the three views respond to changes in the model. Hopefully in the next week or so I'll have a chance to complete it and post. I'll be sure to answer any questions you may have while you work with you application.
I was stepping through the code, this morning, from the second article to see how the views responded to events/messages. I'll be re-writing a small and "old" invoice application to see how the framework is constructed. Probably start at the end of next week. If everything seems to suite my needs, which at the moment seems to, I might use it in a much larger application. I'll let you know if I have questions as I go along.
To make it easier to ask questions, here is my email, firstname.lastname@example.org. Of course if you think the questions would serve to augment the article, continue to post and I will post answers to them. If you truly do intend to use it in a large application, perhaps we could collaborate. If you are interested, please email me.
