Thanks Bridge but i need more information.

My cview derived class is CSpyLoaderView
My cdocument derived class is CSpyLoaderDoc

in CSpyLoaderView i have the following inline function

CSpyLoaderDoc* GetDocument() {return (CSpyLoaderDoc*)GetDocument();}

When i call GetDocument i trigger a stack overflow exception.
Is the casting incorrect?
Can you give me a line.

The answer is that the cast is correct, but the code is wrong, change to

CSpyLoaderDoc* GetDocument() {return (CSpyLoaderDoc*)m_pDocument; }


The reason you get a stack overflow is there is infinite recursion in your code, GetDocument calls itself add infinitum (filling the stack till your program crashes)
