Switching view dynamically

Posted on 2000-04-20
Last Modified: 2013-11-20
I have two view. One derived from CTreeView and the other one derived from CListView. There is a vertical splitter in between these two views.

My problem is that when i right click on one of the tree item on my CTreeView, a popup dialog box appears allowing users to choose an option, (view 1, view 2, view 3)(p/s:List View is in report format).

When a user choose either view 1 or view 2 option, i want it to be able to switch from view 1 to view 2 or from view 2 to view 1(right view)! How do i do that? Please help!

And when i choose view 3 option, i want view 1 and view 2 concurrently displayed on my right view. That also means i want another horizontal splitter windows. How do i do that? Please help.

I would like to say a thousand of thank you for the person that would be able to solve my problem. Thank you!!!

Here is the link to the page containing the source for what you want.
You will find here a class derived from CSplitterWnd which
1. shows/hides rows or columns of a static splitter window and
2. switches/replaces views.
