By using app wizard, i've included MRU(recently file list) in my application, and everytime i open a new file i use AddToRecentFileList()to add that file into the registry. But how to trap the menu message of recent file list when it is selected ? there is not message mapping for recent file list like other menu options do.

Add a handler to your View class for OnInitialUpdate.  This will be called every time you open a recent file using the recent file list  It will also be called for the File Open menu command too however.

Hope this helps,
David

thanx a lot David, but i have found the solution which i put a OnFileOpen() message handle in CDocment class and trap the message and the file name as well, then i pass the filename to my CMainframe to load the desired project. Anyhow, thanx for you help.
