Where to place progress dialog call


I am working on a SDI application that uses a static splitter window devided into 2 panes.
(The first pane implements a tree view and the second a list view.)
I want to calculate a table (Array of doubles) stored in the document when the application
starts up.
Since those calculations can take a few seconds I want to visualize it, using a progress bar
in a modal dialog that poppes up and disappears when the table is processed.
I want to know where I can best place the call to show the dialog that starts the calculation
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It depends on where you can start the calculation. You may put it in your overridden CWinApp::InitInstance or CFrameWnd::OnCreate or CView::OnCreate.

I need the table to process the items in the list view (second pane), so the best place to call the dialog would be in CMyListView::OnCreate.
Could you confirm that ?
