Multiple Forms in   SDI application

Hi friends,

I have few more questions. I am planning to develop a database application using MFC. I need to create number
of Dialogs based on the CFormView class.

Is it possible to create more than one Form in an SDI
application on the fly?

If yes, how to instantiate a second Dialog (derived from CFormView)?
How to display and hide these Forms?

I will spell the question once again.

* I have an SDI application with its view derived from
  CFormView.
* I need to create additional Dialogs based on CFormView.
* If a button  on 'Form' is clicked another 'Form'
  should pop up.

I would also like to know if more number of Dialogs eats up
system resources, consequently affecting the performance?

Note: "Create multiple views for the SingleDocument..."
      is not an answer for my question.

An earliest reply will be of great help.

Many thanks.
Leena.

There is a good example of this in the C++ Q&A column in the DEC98 issue of Microsoft Systems Journal.  You can get the code from www.microsoft.com/msj.
