How can I have a window pop up on a new document to ask, for example, for player names.  I have a game and want to be able to have a pop-up window saying "Enter Player 1's Name" with a box below or beside it and a window saying "Enter Player 2's Name" with a box below or beside it for input and then have the input names be stored into strings for later output onto the screen.

Look into creating a DialogBox and displaying it using DoModal(). There is plenty in the help. Once youve done this perform the do modal in the documents OnNewDocument() function.

In the constructor of your document class, execute a modal dialog which accepts input of player names, etc., and stores the data in strings which are data members of the document. This data will then be available as needed.

I assume you are familiar with building and executing a dialog.
