ActivateFrame(int nCmdShow)

when I create a default MDI app with appwiz, and add
ActivateFrame() by classwiz to mainMDIframe
this function is not visited at all. I put a stop by debugger
ant initiate the app, and close the app, no visit. why ?
I need to use this function to initilize my MDIframe size,
and status etc ? for a good solution I will give 50pts extra

      In the case of an MDI appln, the mainframe object is created in the InitInstance of the App class. And after loading the frame , the ShowWindow function is called for that function.
To initialise the size , u can always do that in the ShowWindow Function. To change the styles of the window , u can do that either in the LoadFrame function or in the PreCreateWindow function of the Mainframe class.

In the case of an SDI application , u donot explicitly create the Mainframe object anywhere. Hence all size initialisations are done in the ActivateFrame function which gets called.

In MDI appln , since u're specifically calling the ShowWindow function , u do not need to call the ActivateFrame().
