I want to connect a recordset to a dialog, but I failed to get the active document.  The code is as follows:

BOOL CPlotDialog::OnInitDialog()
{
   CFyp1Doc * pDoc = (CFyp1Doc *)            GetParentFrame()->GetActiveDocument());
   m_pDialogSet = &(pDoc->m_dialogSet);
   m_pDialogSet->Open();
   CDialog::OnInitDialog();
}

/////////////////////////////////////////////

GetParentFrame() is successful, but GetActiveDocument() returns NULL.... so program terminates with error...

Tons of Thanks!!

Sorry, that was my fault, this one should work:

((CFrameWnd*)AfxGetMainWnd())->GetActiveFrame()->GetActiveDocument();
