Unique titles for views

I have several views open on the same document. MFC labels them document:1, document:2 and so on, and changing the document title changes the title of every view. I would like to use a unique title for each view. How can I do that?

Override virtual member function `void OnUpdateFrameTitle(BOOL bAddToTitle)' defined in CFrameWnd.
The function is called when another frame for the document is opened.
The default implementation generates a text from m_strTitle member, document's name and window's number (in nonvirtual function UpdateFrameTitleForDocument).
You can override the default so that you will not call the inherited function and supply title entirely on your own.
If you're happy with the tittle the frame window get in call to the Create() member function, exclude FWS_ADDTOTITLE flag from the frame window's style - this prevents combining the frame title with the document name.

I 'd have the same problem.

Try to use  CDocument::SetTytle() in every View.


void CYourView::OnInitialUpdate()
{
      CView::OnInitialUpdate();
      
      .........
      GetDocument()->SetTitle("Your name");
                .....
}

Got it, thank you very much! (Actually I had to override OnUpdateFrameTitle in CMDIChildWnd.)

(- I have tried GetDocument()->SetTitle("Your name") earlier too, but it seems to change the title in all views at once.)
