Hi,

U want the child windows to be maximised as soon as they come up? Then just map OnInitialUpdate() function to ur view class and modify it as bellow.

void CMyView::OnInitialUpdate()
{
     CFormView::OnInitialUpdate();
     GetParent()->ShowWindow(SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED);
}

That should give u the maximised child window. Try it out.

OpenDocumentFile() opens the document logicaly. The physical layer (the window apparience) of this operation is managed in the CWnd class, as the base window class.
If you want your child wnd always to appear maximized, the best solution is to override its PreCreateWindow() function and add this part of the code before the call to the base class version of the function...

     LONG     dwSt;

        // Get the current window styla
     dwSt = ::GetWindowLong( this->m_hWnd, GWL_STYLE );

        // Maximize it!
     dwSt = dwSt | WS_MAXIMIZE;

        // Save the new style.
     ::SetWindowLong( this->m_hWnd, GWL_STYLE, dwSt );

        // Update the window with the new style.
     ::SetWindowPos( this->m_hWnd, HWND_TOP, 0, 0, 0, 0, SWP_NOMOVE | SWP_NOSIZE | SWP_NOZORDER | SWP_FRAMECHANGED );


This way, your child windows will always be borned maximized. If you want to control this behaviour, you can move this piece of code to some wnd's function and call it any time you wish.
