Hi,

Well.. my question is : Would it be possible to create a
new MDI document with a specified file? You'll say : "Hey!
simply call the OnFileOpen function..." well.. no because
I don't want the "SelectFile" dialog to appear, I just want to open a specified file and automatically load it in a new MDI child window.
How's it possible?

Thanks!

Get the document template pointer (see you app's InitInstance()). From that pointer, call OpenDocumentFile(). For more information, see CDocTemplate::OpenDocumentFile().
