Opening a MDI document Maximized

At application startup time how do I open a MDI document maximized? Currently I open the document and then maximize it, but it uses a graphics view  so it flashes a bit. I would rather it was already maximized before any graphics are being displayed.

Thanks, Eric

Add style WS_MAXIMIZE to the style of the createwindow function of the MDI client window.

Do I have to use CreateWindow?

In CChildFrame::PreCreateWindow I added
    cs.style |= WS_MINIMIZE;  
and it works as I would expect

If I use
   cs.style |=WS_MAXIMIZE;
it seems to have no effect


BOOL CChildFrame::PreCreateWindow(CREATESTRUCT& cs)
{
    cs.style |= WS_MINIMIZE;  // this works
    return CMDIChildWnd::PreCreateWindow(cs);
}

BOOL CChildFrame::PreCreateWindow(CREATESTRUCT& cs)
{
   cs.style |=WS_MAXIMIZE; // this doesn't work
   return CMDIChildWnd::PreCreateWindow(cs);
}

Call function MDIMaximize()from the message handler of the message WM_CREATE.

int CChildFrame::OnCreate(LPCREATESTRUCT lpCreateStruct)
{
      if (CMDIChildWnd::OnCreate(lpCreateStruct) == -1)
            return -1;
      
      // TODO: Add your specialized creation code here
      MDIMaximize();
      return 0;
}
