Events and virtual functions

Virtual functions are the key for handling events in any application framework. Framework uses base pointer to access objects. Base class implements default event handling. User can derive base class and implement their own event functions. MFC however use very limited numbers of virtual functions for the events. These are the events mandatory for most of the objects. Rest of the events can be implemented by users with MESSAGE_MAP.

Events and vtable size

We all know that virtual function introduces a virtual table pointer/vptr and a virtual function table. This table grows when we introduce more virtual functions. MFC has wide range of events and if we declare all as virtual then this virtual function table would grow beyond imagination. That is why MFC uses a very limited events as virtual functions and rest of the large numbers are open to the users to be declared as per user's need. User can start defining this static array with BEGIN_MESSAGE_MAP and END_MESSAGE_MAP

Events with Virtual Function

class CDialog : public CWnd
10    virtual int DoModal();
11    virtual BOOL OnInitDialog();
13  protected:
14    virtual void OnOK();
15    virtual void OnCancel();
16  };
