Hi!
override in the your CMainFrame:
virtual void OnUpdateFrameTitle(BOOL bAddToTitle);
code can be like this:

{
     // copy first part of title loaded at time of frame creation
     TCHAR szText[256+_MAX_PATH] ;
     *szText = 0;

     CDocument* pDocument = GetActiveDocument();
     if (bAddToTitle && pDocument != NULL)
          {
           lstrcpy(szText, pDocument->GetTitle());
          lstrcat(szText, _T(" - "));
          }
     lstrcat(szText, m_strTitle);
     AfxSetWindowText(m_hWnd, szText);
}

I must change AfxSetWindowText(m_hWnd, szText);
to
SetWindowText(szText);
to work well.

Thanks
