I have an MDI app and I would like to know how to display the initial CView  in a maximized state on startup or on opening a new vew.  I have tried Wingo's tip in his FAQ but this did not seem to help.  I know how to maximize the CFrameWnd but how do I maximize the MDI child views?

  Add MDIMaximize() in your CChildFrame::OnCreate() such as:  

 int CChildFrame::OnCreate(LPCREATESTRUCT lpCreateStruct)
 {
      if (CMDIChildWnd::OnCreate(lpCreateStruct) == -1)
            return -1;
      
      // TODO: Add your specialized creation code here
      this->MDIMaximize();

      return 0;
 }

Dear xbwen:

Thanks for your info.  As implemented, your code caused an assertion.  Below is a method that works.  Thanks very much.  Your solution is elegant and simple.  Well done.

BOOL CChildFrame::Create(LPCTSTR lpszClassName, LPCTSTR lpszWindowName, DWORD dwStyle, const RECT& rect, CMDIFrameWnd* pParentWnd, CCreateContext* pContext)
{
      // TODO: Add your specialized code here and/or call the base class
      BOOL      bRetval;
      bRetval = CMDIChildWnd::Create(lpszClassName, lpszWindowName, dwStyle, rect, pParentWnd, pContext);
      this->MDIMaximize();
      return bRetval;
}
