How to make a CMDIChildWnd pop-up?

My application has one doc and two views. One view is used to display picture in normal size and the other view is used to display the same but zoomed picture. I hope the latter view can keep TOPMOST. But since the CMDIChildWnd cann't have a WS_POPUP style, how should I do? Thanks!

You need to create a new frame window class for the view. CMDIChildWnd is only designed to be a child of the main app-window.

Derive a new frame class from CMiniFrameWnd. Override PreCreateWindow of it:

BOOL CTopFrame::PreCreateWindow(CREATESTRUCT& cs)
{
    cs.dwExStyle |= WS_EX_TOPMOST;      
    return CMiniFrameWnd::PreCreateWindow(cs);
}

Theres is some problems to solve:
 1. The frame does not activate correct.
 2. There is a seperate menu in the top-most frame.

Your override is incorrect.  You should code:

BOOL CTopFrame::PreCreateWindow(CREATESTRUCT& cs)
{
   if (!CMiniFrameWnd::PreCreateWinodw(cs))
      return FALSE;

   cs.dwExStyle |= WS_EX_TOPMOST;
   return TRUE;
}
