What is the difference between using the CView class and
creating a view using the CreateView class function in the CWnd class ?. Can they be used interchangeably ?. Can the CreateView be used in a splitter application ?. Can a CWnd derived control class be used in a splitter application ?.

There is no CWnd::CreateView() function. CFrameWnd and CSplitterWnd had CreateView() members, but CWnd certainly doesn't.

Mike,
I stand corrected on the CreateView (I'm not an MFC expert ....
yet) Anyway lets go thru the question again making the substitute on CFrameWnd for CWnd (where applicable).

Well, the difference between CreateView in CFrameWnd and CreateView in CSplitterWnd is simply support for splitter windows.

CreateView in CSplitterWnd knows that the view needs to be laid out inside the splitter. If there's other panes in the splitter, CSplitterWnd::CreateView() will shrink them to share space with the new view. CSplitterWnd's CreateView() implementation also assures that the view gets hooked up with the right CDocument object, since it will probably be associated with an existing document instead of a new one.

CreateView in CFrameWnd just creates a view. It expects that view to take up the whole client area of the view, and assures that the view doesn't have WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE because it would look stupid. CFrameWnd isn't as careful with the existing document setup because it will probably be called from the doc template as a _new_ document is being created.
