CWinApp::OpenDocumentFile() without adding to MRU file list

I have an MFC SDI doc/view app, and I want to be able to load files with the CWinApp::OpenDocumentFile() method but without having certain files be added to the MRU list.  (I do want an MRU list, but not all loaded files should show up there).

Is this possible?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

From a quick look at the mfc source,
I'd say the best you can hope for is to remove it from the MRU list once it's in there.


but as m_pRecentFileList is a protected member of CWinApp so the you'll have to do the work in your CWinApp derived class.
