I'm in that situation. I've created a View, I've two button controls. If I say 'ok' I want to create another View, if I say 'cancel' I want to create another View, not always the previous one. I've thinked to get the mainframe pointer and switch from views using it, but I've not found the command to get it. The best is to create view directly from the other view. Can I have the simplest way to do that ?

If it is nessasery to keep the original view alive after pressing buttons then:
create all needed view's befor and switch between them trough
CFrameWnd::SetActiveView    //your mainframe class is derived from CFrameWnd

If it isn't nessasery to keep the original view exsisting, then simply destroy it and create a new one.
You can get pointer to mainframe with
"GetParentFrame" funciton
