multiple docs in a splitter window

I want something like a splitter window, but that has a
doc/view in the left pane, and one of several doc/view
combinations in the right pane.

Basically, I'm going to have a tree control on the left.
Depending on what is selected and a menu choice, there will
be distinctly different data sets on the right.  I would
like to be able to have a separate document for each.  Each
doc then would also have its own corresponding view.

I have an SDI app that has one document, a left view, and
multiple right views that can be swapped around.  My problem
is that I'm not sure how to have multiple docs.  Thanks!

To have multiple documents inside of only one frame, you can override the CMultiDocTemplate and see how they add the first document.  Then you will want to add multiple documents in the same fashion.  You will probably need to switch to a MDI instead.

Also look out at www.codeguru.com and see what they have concerning multiple documents.  There are a few articles on it.

Good luck, this is a very Non-trivial problem and has been a large task of mine as well.

I've decided to stick with the SDI interface.  I only want
one document frame.  Since I can't easily have multiple
docs, I've turned my one doc into a state machine ala GOF's
state pattern so that it behaves like I'm using multiple
docs.

I've got my proof-of-concept app up and running now.  It's a
breeze.  I'd still be playing around with overriding
document templates if I had gone the MDI route.  :)

Again, thanks for your help, Phillip!
