MDI appliccation problem
I am working on an MDI application.
I am haveing a strange problemin this application.
I have 2 dialogs in the main MDI application (Common settings &
standard about app dialog). I have my Doc/View/Frame coming from
When I start my application, and use the dialogs (common dialog OR
About App) it works fine (i.e. dialog s are displayed properly with
proper filled values).
Now I create a new instance of a Document by clicking New in Fuile Menu
or Ctrl+N (I have 2 document types available right now), and then close
the document (by Close in File menu or Ctrl+F4).

I have an MDI app where I want each child window to in turn host another MDI
parent, allowing a managed frame of children for each top-level MDI child.
The purpose is a "workspace" driven UI where the top-level children are
maximised and displayed as tabs only, but each has to be able to host
further framed windows within it.
I am not an MFC expert on MDI/SDI, nor on the underlying API requirements. I
have been able to create primitive child frame in the top-level view's
OnInitialUpdate, specifying the view as the parent, which does bounds
clipping OK, however I'm l...How to get the Mouse Up event for a custom activeX control ?
I am using MFC and an activeX control.. I am putting my activeX control on
the form.. Now, I want to have the mouse up event for this control... like
if user presses mouse key anywhere on the control and leaves that key, i
want to capture that event... So, is there any way to get that using MFC...
Please help me..
If your control is in MFC, you should get the event as you normally
would using the right macros. Your control should fire an event if you
are trying to capture it outside the control (host).
...Creating Document in MDI app
In my application I wish to be able to export certain data to another file.
In one of the functions in my view I need to create a new document, call
some functions on it then save and close the document.
I am struggling to find how to do this.
I have only one Document template in my app.
The code I have so far is:
POSITION p = GetApp()->GetFirstDocTemplatePosition();
CDocTemplate* pTem = GetApp()->GetNextDocTemplate(p);
CBob_photoDoc* pDoc = (CBob_photoDoc*)
CBob_photoDoc is my document class.

...How to set MDI view as background view?
I am developing a MDI application and have the requirement to allow
for the definition of a single background view. By using a bulletin
board analogy, it is more clear what is needed. In this analogy, the
background view would be the bulletin board and all other views would
be the flyers in the foreground. I have no problems implementing this
by changing the z-order of the desired background view by calling the
frame window's SetWindowPos() method, provided that no view is
maximized. However, I need to implement this capability regardless of
the window state; normal, maximized, minimize...User Defined Grid Control

The animation demonstration at the ASP.Net AJAX Control Toolkit
site shows a "flyout" panel with a "close" control. The
demo is quite good.
Unfortunately, the author did not supply much information
about how this was implemented. The "flyout" target
control was a <div> tag which may have been created
from an <asp:Panel> control, but the author did
not bother to say! A few things can be
learned by viewing the source code underneath.

I've ever seen an application that moves the active control using Tab or
So the application has a few Combo Boxes, CEdit, Checkboxes and to move from
one control to another, we can use either Tab or Enter key.
How to do that?
I've tried to find it but I still haven't found any.
Thank you very much.
You need to deal with WM_KEYDOWN message for Enter key.
Simply explains below:
1.In the recieving function for WM_KEYDOWN, catch the key 'Enter'.
2.Call GetNextDlgTabItem API to get the next control which is capable to tab
3.Call SetFocus on the control

My addled brain needs some help! My database is for a volunteer victims in

data relevant to each individual incident.One section has 6 drop down boxes

organizations to which a victim might be referred. Thus any victim could be
referred to up to 6 different places. Each DD box has its own control source

I have added full screen functionality to MDI application as per
fscrn.exe sample provided by microsoft.
The problem is when I minimize the application (provided a minimize
button on toolbar), and after that lock the computer and log in again,
and click on taskbar to show application again, then menubar associated
with application shows up. It does not go even if I minimize the
application and again show it back.
This problem is not present when I just minimize the application
without locking the computer. It does not show menubar that time.
Please help me.
