“C++ Sample Application”

As I am writing this, MPW C++ is shipping; version 3.1b1 is available through APDA as of October 11. The following message could be found on Applelink:

“On Tuesday, October 3, 1989 Apple Computer, Inc announced MPW C++ v.3.1B1 and said MPW C++ was available for ordering immediately and would be shipping later in October. ‘Later’ is here NOW! MPW C++ v.3.1B1 started shipping on Wednesday, October 11, 1989!

To get your copy, call APDA at

1-800-282-2732 (U.S.)

1-800-637-0029 (Canada)

1-408-562-3910 (International)

ask for part number M0346LL/A. The price is $175 and the package includes one Apple C++ Manual, three AT&T C++ manual (Product Reference, Library Manual, and Selected Readings), MacApp 2.0B9 preliminary C++ interfaces (so you can use MacApp from C++),and three 3.5" disks.

Thus, all people interested in C++ can now get their copies - and follow this tutorial.

The example that I prepared for you this month is derived from one of the samples on the Apple C++ disks. Apple’s samples include a rudimentary application framework, some sort of a mini-MacApp, defined in the classes TApplication and TDocument. After last month’s introduction to some essential features of C++, I’ll show you this time how to use this framework to build a small application that opens and closes a window in which some text is displayed and handles one custom menu in addition to the Apple, File, and Edit menus.

Since the base classes, TApplication and TDocument, provide for MultiFinder support, our application will also be fully MultiFinder compatible. I am not reprinting the full TApplication and TDocument framework here, “for copyright reasons” - the real reason being, of course, that it would make this article about ten pages longer, and those of you who use C++ have those files, anyway. However, we’ll take a short look at the main features of those two classes.

TApplication implements the basic behavior of a Macintosh application. This class provides, among other methods, the constructor for instantiating a new application object, and the public EventLoop routine:


class TApplication : HandleObject {
void EventLoop(void);

Note here that this class is derived from the superclass HandleObject; this is a special class particular to MPW C++, where space for the object is allocated through a handle, not a pointer, to prevent memory fragmentation. Another ‘special’ superclass is PascalObject, which is used to access class definitions in Object Pascal from C++, necessary for MacApp support. We’ll discuss these classes in a later column.

Most methods in TApplication are protected so that they can only be accessed by derived classes. They include basic event handlers and initializers which are called before and after the main event loop. Those methods are declared virtual which means they don’t have to be defined within the class TApplication itself, and run-time binding will be supported where necessary.

The behavior of our application will be completely determined by the way we re-define TApplication’s methods. Of the base class, we only need the header file TApplication.h to make its definitions available to our particular implementation; the code for TApplication can be kept in a separate object file or a library.

A simple program would define its own application class, say TMacTutorApp, and override some of the event handlers in TApplication. The main program then just consist of calls to two methods, the constructor and the event loop:


int main (void)
gTheApplication = new TMacTutorApp;
if (gTheApplication == nil) return 0;
return 0;

A complete Macintosh application in five lines of C++ code! (I don’t count the braces). Of course, this simplicity is deceptive; all the work is done in the methods that determine the behavior of the event loop. Our application class, its associated document class, and the methods are implemented in listing 1; the header file that contains the definitions is shown in listing 2.

Our Application

Our application class re-defines TApplication’s constructor and six private methods. Listing 1 contains the actual code. Let’s explain the methods as they are called when the program is executed.

When the application object is constructed, first the constructor of the base class, TApplication, is called. By default, this method initializes all the toolbox managers, determines whether there is enough memory and the system environment is OK to run the program, and does some other initializations. Then, TMacTutorApp’s constructor is called (listing 1); this method sets up the menu bar and creates one new document (DoNew()).

Any application created using the TApplication framework contains a list of documents, whose maximum number is determined by the constant kMaxOpenDocuments in our application’s class definition (Listing 2). The actual handling of this document list is implemented in TApplication itself and need not concern us here. As long as the number of open documents is less than kMaxOpenDocuments, the New, and possibly Open, items in the File menu are enabled; if the maximum number is reached, they will be disabled. This behavior is laid out in the AdjustMenus method. That method is called once on every pass through the event loop (also defined in the base class).

Mouse downs (and other events) are automatically passed on to their respective handlers by TApplication. The routine that we need to override in our class definition to handle menu selections is DoMenuCommand (Listing 1). Here, the basic apple, File and Edit menu selection are treated in a more or less standard way; the fourth menu is our own addition and contains four items to choose from. When one is selected, that item will be checked while the others are unchecked (checking/ unchecking is done by AdjustMenus). Furthermore, the number of the selected item, as well as a corresponding string, are passed on to the open document. The document then knows which message to display in its window.

Our Document

The basic methods that are defined in the TDocument class deal with document display (i.e. window updating, growing/zooming, activate/deactivate), editing (cut/paste, mouse down in content, key down), and file and print handling. All these methods do nothing by default; they need to be overridden in our document’s class definition.

Our document is called - what else - a TMacTutorDocument, and the methods we redefine are the constructor, destructor, window draw (private) and update methods. The constructor creates a new window and assigns an initial message to be displayed. When you look at its code (Listing 1), you’ll notice that the first line looks somewhat funny:

 (short resID, StringPtr s) : (resID) { etc  }

This form of a function call is particular to C++ constructors. When a constructor is called, it will call the constructor of the base class first; this constructor might need another set of parameters. This parameter list is therefore given after the colon. In our case, we pass our window’s resource ID to the base class constructor, which then creates a new window according to the resource information. Thereafter our own constructor code is called, which initializes the message string and makes the window visible.

The destructor will only hide our window; the actual deletion of the object (DisposeWindow) is done in the base class, TDocument.

DoUpdate will call our definition of DrawWindow, embedded in calls to BeginUpdate and EndUpdate. DrawWindow itself, which displays the message string in the window, is private; all window re-drawing is handled through calls to DoUpdate.

Methods inside TMacTutorApp set and retrieve the selected menu item number in our document, and set the message string. We therefore need access to these variables, which are private to TMacTutorDocument. Such access is provided through the methods SetDisplayString, GetItemSelected, and SetItemSelected, which are defined inline in the header file (listing 3).

Taking all these definitions together, you have an object-oriented framework for a very simple application. You see how easy it is to expand this framework to your own needs, and how well-separated the different parts of an application are in an object-oriented environment like C++. Application setup, menu handling (proper to the application), and window handling (proper to the document), are clearly distinct, as are the basic behavior (laid down in the application framework) and the user-defined behavior (by overriding the basic methods).

I’ll leave it at that for this month; next time we’ll define our own family of objects that can be displayed and manipulated in a document window. If you have questions or comments regarding this column, interesting pieces of C++ code, or suggestions for improvement, feel free to contact me via MacTutor or through the network: LANGOWSKI@FREMBL51.BITNET.
