Hi, I need help and, if possible, detailed instructions as to how to use the slider and edit box controls in a dialog bar in a MFC/MDI program.

I have already created the dialogbar in the CMainFrame class of my program.

How can I get my views to access, update the controls in the dialogbar? (Problem: As my program progress with playing back an audio file, it should update the slider and editbox with the current frame being played.)

How can I get the controls to access the data/methods in the view? (Problem: When the user drags the slider, the program (i.e. the view) has to forward/reverse the audio file accordingly)

Thanks in advance.

It seems like your main frame has a reference to the dialog bar. In your dialog bar, you need to handle the notifications from the slider and edit controls. From here, you will need to have a pointer to the document. GetActiveDocument() will return this to you. Then you can use IsKindOf to safely cast from CDocument to CYourDocument. Once you have a pointer to CYourDocument, call some methods in your document class to update the position. In these methods, you will need to call UpdateAllViews() and pass them information about the notification. Finally, your view has to override OnUpdate() to know about these notifications. This is for the user dragging the slider.

For your other problem, it is very similar. The view should call some methods on the document that will update the position. But these methods will use GetMainWnd() and need to cast to CMyMainFrm. Then you need to get the children of the dialog bar and update their values.
