I have created a mdi-application. I want to create a mdi-child-window with an outlook same like the print preview view without any view associated with it. In this print preview window I want to do something like a report output for my program. The report I want to show in the preview view shall not be displayed in another mdi-view, it shall only appear in my print preview window.

How is it possible ?

In answer to your question "How to subclass CPrintPreview ?"

Derive your class CMyPreviewView from CPreviewView

Override OnFilePrintPreview for you view class (say CMyView)

Make a copy of the original and change it as follows
void CMyView::OnFilePrintPreview()
{
    // In derived classes, implement special window handling here
    // Be sure to Unhook Frame Window close if hooked.

    // must not create this on the frame. Must outlive this function
    CPrintPreviewState* pState = new CPrintPreviewState;

    if (!DoPrintPreview(AFX_IDD_PREVIEW_TOOLBAR, this,
                RUNTIME_CLASS(CMyPreviewView), pState))
//                            ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
// Change this to be your derived CMyPreviewView class
//
    {
        // In derived classes, reverse special window handling
        // here for Preview failure case

        TRACE0("Error: DoPrintPreview failed");
        AfxMessageBox(AFX_IDP_COMMAND_FAILURE);
        delete pState;      // preview failed to initialize,
                    // delete State now
    }
}

Yes, that's what I was searching for. At the weekend I found in MFC/SRC the file Viewprev.cpp which described what happens while print preview. And therefrom I found out that I must subclass CPreviewView and not CPrintPreview. It's again the help file of developer studio, in which you find nothing. Then somewhere I also found out that Technical Note 030 describe what to do if I want to subclass CPreviewView. Today in the morning I want to delete this question, but you have answered before, so I think, you have really earned the points.
Thank you
bye,
