If you want to know what MDI child is active call
GetActive from MainFrame MDI window.
Id you want to know for specific MDI child frame call
(CWnd member) function GetWindowPlacement(WINDOWPLACEMENT*).
In structure WINDOWPLACEMENT member showCmd specifies the current show state of the window.

if u wanna know only if the window is minimized use
IsIconic() which specifies whether CWnd is minimized.(iconic).

if u need to llok for the rest of window style,
use this code:

     WINDOWPLACEMENT  wndPlacement;
     GetWindowPlacement(&wndPlacement);
     switch(wndPlacement.showCmd){
     case SW_MINIMIZE:

     case SW_HIDE:

     case SW_RESTORE:

     case SW_MAXIMIZE:

     }

good luck
