Multiple document templates use

I have an MDI application that is using multiple FormViews
as the documents.  I know how to associate the templates
with the document and mainframe classes using the RUNTIME
MACRO.  Right now if I click on new I get a VC++ generated
Input Box asking me which form to load.  How can I load one of
these forms with the selection of an item from a menu or the click
of a button.  The application is menu driven, and I need to load a
corresponding form according to the user selection.

Thank-you -- jr

You'll need to write your own handler for the File/New (or the individual menu choices you want for each specific doc type, like "New Chart" or "New Sheet").

In there, just use a pointer to the doc template to call OpenDocumentFile() on the template you want to use. Pass NULL to create a new file, or pass a fully qualified path to serialiez from that particular file.
