Hi there,
My application uses MDI and some Control bars dockable in one mainframe. I try to save the location of each object in the registry when I close the app. I used WriteProfileInt() on OnClose() and GetProfileInt() in PreCreateWindow() in MainFrame to save the TopLeft() of the WindowRect, but it doesn't work. I just get the TopLeft of the last Rect written to profile. How can save all the location of controlbar and view after I move them around?
If you have any hint or answer for this question, please let me know. Thank you for your time.

You will have to iterate through the views and control bars, save them in a certain order under different registry entries.

for example:

ControlBar1
ControlBar2
View1
View2

Under each you could save name of the window, position and a lot of other things.

To iterate through the views check GetFirstViewPosition() and GetNextView().

Hi plaroche,

   Can you give me some detail about your answer?
   I can't get it. Right now under each control or view I have window name, topleft and width and height.  When I call GetProfileInt() from OnCreate() of Mainframe  I use MoveWindow() to the new position but it doesn't work.
Maybe some more hints will be a big help. Thank you.
