I'm using MS VC++ 1.52 and I have created a multiple dialog interface application using the AppWizard. I've stopped the application opening the empty child window when it starts but I can't figure out how to change the size of a new child window whenever a file is opened. I take it there is some very easy way to do this that I've overlooked.

you could do it in the View.
Set a message handler for OnInitialUpdate for your view class
Call SetWindowPos()  or MoveWindow()
