In this code snippet a standard border is drawn around a CEikEdwin. The same technique applies to all controls inherited from CEikBorderedControl.

MMP file

The following libraries are required:

LIBRARY egul.lib
LIBRARY eikcoctl.lib

Header file

CEikEdwin* iEditor;

Source file

void CAppView::ConstructL(const TRect& aRect)
// ...
// Set border type
// ...
void CAppView::Draw(const TRect& aRect) const
// Get the standard graphics context
CWindowGc& gc = SystemGc();
// Clear the screen
// Get the border
TGulBorder border = iEditor->Border();
// Draw the border so that it surrounds iEditor
TRect editorRect = iEditor->Rect();
border.Draw(gc, border.OuterRect(editorRect));


A standard border is drawn around a CEikEdwin.
