place this function in your oncreate method or oninitdialog method depending on what type of application it is.

this->ShowWindow(SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED);

don't put "this->" on a call like this .. it isn't needed and just confused things.

BTW: Do you mean you want your application to be maximised, or is it a view within anb MDI app?

Either way, if you started with AppZiard, there are options for having the application and/or child windows maximised, minimised etc at startup.

Have a look at what difference these settings make to the generated application and change your application accordingly.

HI !!
   Hook an OnSetFocus() function handler for the view class and in that function do it like this

void CMyView::OnSetFocus()
{
   CView::OnSetFocus()
    ShowWindow(SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED);
}

Make the following changes in the InitInstance() member function of your application class. After the line
      ParseCommandLine(cmdInfo);
add the following line
      m_nCmdShow=SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED;
then make sure the ShowWindow() function is called as follows:
      m_pMainWnd->ShowWindow(m_nCmdShow);

thanks,

Here is story...

Just followed my own advise (from my answer above)

The AppWizard makes the following things different for a maximised MDI app with maximised child windows vs a standard MDI app...

1) In CChildFrame::PreCreateWindow
adds the statement:
 
      cs.style = WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE | WS_OVERLAPPED | WS_CAPTION | WS_SYSMENU
            | FWS_ADDTOTITLE | WS_THICKFRAME | WS_MINIMIZEBOX | WS_MAXIMIZEBOX;

before the return true;

2) Adds the function:

void CChildFrame::ActivateFrame(int nCmdShow)
{
      // TODO: Modify this function to change how the frame is activated.

      nCmdShow = SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED;
      CMDIChildWnd::ActivateFrame(nCmdShow);
}

which is declared in the {{AFX_VIRTUAL part of the class declaration .h file as:

      virtual void ActivateFrame(int nCmdShow);

3) In CMainFrame::PreCreateWindow
adds the statement:

      cs.style = WS_OVERLAPPED | WS_CAPTION | FWS_ADDTOTITLE
            | WS_THICKFRAME | WS_SYSMENU | WS_MINIMIZEBOX | WS_MAXIMIZEBOX | WS_MAXIMIZE;

before the return TRUE;

4) In the application's InitInstance changes:
      pMainFrame->ShowWindow(m_nCmdShow);
to:
      pMainFrame->ShowWindow(SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED);

If you make similar changes to your app, then it should also be maximised.

BOOL CChildFrame::PreCreateWindow(CREATESTRUCT& cs)
{

cs.style = WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE | WS_OVERLAPPED | WS_CAPTION | WS_SYSMENU
| FWS_ADDTOTITLE | WS_THICKFRAME | WS_MINIMIZEBOX | WS_MAXIMIZEBOX|WS_MAXIMIZE;

      return CMDIChildWnd::PreCreateWindow(cs);
}
