To do it the MFC way you need to open it via the doctemplate.

You will find the right doctemplate (if you have more than one), using CWinApp::GetFirstDocTemplatePosition().

Then use OpenDocumentFile() on that doctemplate, a new document, mdi child frame, etc will be created just like you would have clicked on the file new menu item.

This can be done from almost anywhere since AfxGetApp() will return the pointer to your CWinApp derived class, on which you can call a function that will open the child frame.

Example:

    CDocTemplate    *pTemplate;
    CDocBase        *pDoc;
    POSITION        posTemplate;
    POSITION        posDoc;

    posTemplate = GetFirstDocTemplatePosition();
    while(posTemplate != NULL) {
        pTemplate = GetNextDocTemplate(posTemplate);
        if( pTemplate->IsKindOf(RUNTIME_CLASS(CMyTemplated))) {
           pTemplate->OpenDocumentFile(NULL);
           break;
        }
    }
