I have a CFromView with three Edit boxes, and when I´ve opened a file using serialize in CMyDoc I would like to update my three variables in CMyView and then update my Window so that it shows my variables. I´m a newbie and are there anybody who knows a good and easy way to do this, I´d appriciate the code written out. Thanx...

The easiest way is to use classwizrd to define variable for each of the edit boxes using the members variable tab

Lets say the variable are called m_Var1,m_Var2,m_Var3
they should be public tby default
so you can use somthing like
 MyView->m_var = xxxx etc etc
The use UpdateData( FALSE ) to transfer data from the variable to the control. UpdateData( TRUE ) will do the oposite when you want to update the variable ready for storing
Hope this at least gets you started

I´m sorry I didn´t state my question clear enough I try to be more specific.
I´ve got the variables through ClassWizard but I can´t use them in CMyDoc because I don´t know how to create a pointer to the CMyView class. I´ve tried to set
CMyView* pView=GetFirstView();
pView->m_MyVariable;
It doesn´t work, so I would like some help how to do something like that.

How have you created CMyView. If its done through a doc template then it should be added to the doc by the framework.  if not when you create the view call pDoc->AddView( pMyView );
Then when you call getFirstview/ Get next view you will have to use the pView->IsKindOf(RUNTIME_CLASS(CMyView) ) to ensure that the ptr is pointing to you class. Then you should be able to set the variable

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

CMyView was created when I made the project in MFC App Wizard, and one of the problem is that I can´t include CMyView.h in the CMyDoc.cpp file som I don´t reach the CMyView class in CMyDoc when i try to compile I get error saying that the variables are unidentified.
Maybe it wasn´t such an easy question so I´ve increased the points.

I don't see why you can't include the header file. Post the code
for the Doc and View ( headers as well) as it help ( or just email them to me if you dont want to make them public) keyan01@cai.com

I never have the document access the view directly.  I use CDocument::UpdateAllViews(); and have the view use its GetDocument() and get the data accordingly.

I think I can give you an answer, since I've done it before.
In your CMyDoc.cpp under Serialize function call UpdateAllViews (NULL); after you input the data from the data file. Then in your View, add a function OnUpdate(), in this function add these codes: CMyDoc* pDoc = GetDocument(); input the value to the data member in the View, then call UpdataData();
That's it. Good luck.

While I am writing the answer, danny_pav provided a similiar comment. I think you declared some variable corresponding to those in CView. Use the pointer *pDoc in View, you can access the variables you declared in CDoc. Try it. There should be no problem.
