Write the following code in the button click event for creating a directory

if(!CreateDirectory( "c:\\myPreviousDirectory\\MyDirectory", NULL))
{
   // handle error
}

Note that myPreviousDirectory should exist otherwise this call will fail.

Use CStdioFile class for creating a text file.

try
{
    CStdioFile myFile( "c:\\someDir\\MyFile", CFile::modeCreate | CFile::modeWrite | CFile::modeText );

    myFile.WriteString("Hello this is my file\n");
    myFile.WriteString("this is the second line\n");
    myFile.Close();
}
catch(CFileException ex)
{
  // handle exception
}

Please make the following change in the answer:

Instead of CFile::modeText in

    CStdioFile myFile( "c:\\someDir\\MyFile", CFile::modeCreate | CFile::modeWrite | CFile::modeText );

write CFile::typeText

    CStdioFile myFile( "c:\\someDir\\MyFile", CFile::modeCreate | CFile::modeWrite | CFile::typeText );

Sorry for the mistake.
