I used the appwizard to create an SDI where I changed the base class of CView to CEditView.  So, a text file passed as a command-line argument will display and be editable(by default).  I have a text file that is accessed and changed from other sources on my network.  I have the timer in MainFrm set to go off every 3 secs.  I need to know how and where to close the file, so that the timer can reload it.

1.  Consider reloading every three seconds.  Aren't you going to lose any changes you make in the EditView?
2.  Consider having a refresh menu item/toolbar button that also performs the same action.
3.  How to do it:  Add a function to the Document.  Have it call its own OnOpenDocument() (again) and when it is complete use UpdateAllViews() to change the view.

Well, the document will be read-only in the client area.  Strictly for viewing the file.  About the other, I am kind of confused.  Could you give me an example.  I used the class wizard to add the OnOpenDocument in the CMyDoc.  But, not sure what else to do.  Thanks.

Get the name of the file to open--use CDocument::GetPathName
and use it as the argument to OnOpenDocument()
