I have to creat a program: A dialog have a button (Show). Press Show,
then anther dialog is displayed.
I created the first dialog. Then Insert ->Resource->Dialog->New to
create the second dialog (IDD_SHOWPEN).
After that Insert->New Class and declare all: Class type (MFC), Name
(CShowPen), Base class (CDialog), Dialog ID (IDD_SHOWPEN).
I use ClassWizard to write code for button Show
CTestDoc::OnShowPen()
{
    CShowPen    dlg;
    dlg.DoModal();
}
However I received an error: "CShowPen unclared indentifier"  
Where's wrong in my program. Please tell me !
Thanks

You probably forgot to include the .h (containing CShowPen definition )
in the .cpp (containing CTestDoc).

WARNING :
As I was writing this, I realize that you mentioned two dialog boxes in your description
and the class names shown there seem to be following a different naming convention.
In general MFC Parlance, people name CDocument derived classes ending in Doc.

In general, dialog boxes do not have docs associated with them and they can not
handle the button clicks on dialogs boxes.

You're right,  I forgot #include ... Now everything is OK.
But I don't understand your warning:
" In general MFC Parlance, people name CDocument derived classes
  ending in Doc. In general, dialog boxes do not have docs associated
  with them and they can not handle the button clicks on dialogs boxes. "
I've used Wizard in the same steps of Scribble Tutorial of MS.
Could you explain me more clearly !

What I meant to say was this!

As a part of MFC naming conventions (most of them de-facto)

a class derived from CDocument gets a suffix as Doc
a class derived from CView gets suffix as View or Vw
a class derived from CDialog gets suffix as Dlg
and so on ...


In your description, you were mentioning two dialog boxes
but in the code-snippet,

You showed CTestDoc and CShowPen. My comment was because of the first class name. I just wanted to warn that you might be editing the wrong file all this time.

Hey ! If it worked, ignore the warning ;-)
