I guessing that what you are asking is how can you use ArcObjects in unmanaged C++.

All the ArcObject code is based on COM which C++ is able to call.  The way that you do that is to import the required type library, cocreate the COM object, and then use the various interfaces to call what you need.  If this is all new to you then I suggest that you go through the various samples provided.

Of course, if you are writing managed C++ then you should be able to follow the C# example after translating the syntax as required.

If your C++ skills are weak then you could also create a C# object which wrappers the ESRI objects and exposes to COM what you need in terms of an interface.  In other words, do all your heavy lifting in C#.

I want to write unmanaged C++ for Arcgis Engine.

My code for show SymbologyControl:


ISymbologyControlPtr pSym;
pSym.CreateInstance(CLSID_SymbologyControl);
pSym->LoadStyleFile((BSTR)L"C:\\Program Files\\ArcGIS\\Desktop10.0\\Styles\\ESRI_Optimized.ServerStyle" );
pSym->put_DisplayStyle(esriSymbologyDisplayStyle::esriDisplayStyleSmallIcon);

//pSym->AboutBox(); // properly shows About information.



Which method i must to use for show this damned control?

I would appreciate for any tips, about how to show on form (MFC, Qt, Atl).

I found method for show SymbologyControl.


ISymbologyControlPtr pSym;
pSym.CreateInstance(CLSID_SymbologyControl);
IID pSymIID =pSym.GetIID();

QAxWidget* symControlWidget = new QAxWidget();
symControlWidget->setControl("{2ACEE55E-C5F5-483C-8B10-D2B25B81F46F}"); //GUID
symControlWidget->queryInterface(QUuid(pSymIID), (void**)&pSym);
 
pSym->put_ShowContextMenu(VARIANT_TRUE);

QString styleFileName="C:\\Projects\\VSQTGUI\\Data\\ESRI_Optimized.ServerStyle";
BSTR bstr_sfn=CComBSTR((const char*)styleFileName.toAscii());

pSym->LoadStyleFile(bstr_sfn);


layout->addWidget(symControlWidget);
this->setLayout(layout);


But this control empy.

If you don't know how to write C++ code then use C#.  If the code you write has to be called by C++ code then expose it to COM.
