When using the Doc/View archeatecture in MFC, if you try to open a document that is already open, the CDocument::OnOpenDocument doesn't get called. It doesn't do anything. I would like some sort of notification so I can reinitialize some things when the user tries to re-open a document.

Do you mean a document that's already opened by your application, or a document that's got its file locked because it's already opened by some other process?

The document is already opened by my application. When I try to open it again, I want it to get reopened (Revert to saved)

I'll assume that you're writing an MDI app. (Your question doesn't make much sense for an SDI app.)

You should derive your own class from CMultiDocTemplate and override MatchDocType() in that class:

Confidence CYourTemplate::MatchDocType(LPCTSTR lpszPathName, CDocument*& rpDocMatch)
{
   Confidence conf = CMultiDocTemplate::MatchDocType(lpszPathName, rpDocMatch);

   if (conf == CDocTemplate::yesAlreadyOpen)
   {
      // you know it's already open.
      // lpszPathName points to the fully qualified name
      // rpDocMatch points to the document that's already opened
      // after this function returns, MFC will set focus to the document's view
   }
}

If your application's InitInstance(), you need to make sure you hook up an instance of your newly derived class instead of a plain CMultiDocTemplate.
