The Classic Guide to ATL–Now Updated for ATL 8 and Visual Studio 2005

Four leading Windows programming experts systematically reveal ATL’s inner workings, explaining not just how ATL works, but why it works the way it does. Client-side developers will master ATL’s resources for windowing, COM control, MFC integration, web service proxy generation, and more. Server-side programmers will discover ATL’s full COM server and object services, and its extensive support for high-throughput, high-concurrency web applications, and services. Every Windows developer will learn powerful ways to increase flexibility, reduce overhead, and maximize transparency and control.

•           Walk through wizards that simplify ATL usage in common applications

•           Master string handling in C++, COM, and ATL

•           Leverage ATL smart types, including CComPtr, CComQIPtr, CComBSTR, and CComVariant

•           Understand and choose the right options for implementing IUnknown

•           Create glue code that exposes COM objects from COM servers

•           Use canned interface implementations to support object persistence, COM

            collections, enumerators, and connection points

            and controls
