You need to override the OnOpenDocument method of your document class and call the file dialog from there.

Putting up the standard dialog can be done with something like:

     CFileDialog dlg1(TRUE);
     if(dlg1.DoModal()!=IDOK)return;

The filename selected can be found with dlg1.getPathName().

uma99,
You must also override the CDocument::Serialize member function. This is where you'll put your "open" and "save" code.


void CMyDoc::Serialize(CArchive& ar)
{

//CDocument::Serialize gets called by the framework when you open or close a document. It provides your //application with the basic functionality of handling persisted data. In effect, the CArchive argument is a file //that you read and write from. The framework opens and closes the file for you.

//The file you'll be reading from or writing to is ar.GetFile(), of type CFile. You can read/write to/from the //CArchive using ar.GetFile()->Read() and ar.GetFile()->Write().
//You can also use a CArchive like a CStdioFile by calling ar.ReadString() and ar.WriteString().
//see msdn for more details.

     if (ar.IsStoring())
     {
          //add storing (saving) code here.
         
     }
     else
     {
          //add opening code here
     }
}


hope this helps.

Hi Errol,
Thanks for ur reply, Could u please explain me in detail about serilaization.
And what type of File is that i am going to open or save.How to know that or decide that.
I my applcation as i said before i have to create a profile for the user, which includes his options for different settings like fonts, icons etc. and save the profile.'
Thus each profile has to be openedd either as new or exixting then make selection and save changes.
now how should serialization will capture those options selectedby user.

Thank you

uma99,

Serialization is just a fancy name for reading or writing data (to hard disk in this case). You mention you are reading and writing user profiles. Are you sure you want to use the document to do this? The reason I ask is that documents are usually user-independant data. Profiles are the other hand are user specific and are typically stored in .ini files.

what exactly i have to do is to able to create a structure similar to the folders and files structure in Windows.
My application has Projects which contain profiles.Each profile has user info and user options.
Hence when user creates a project he has to create porfiles in it . he can save these profiles update and open for later use.
Profile---|
          |
          |_Profile 1
          |
          |- Profile2
something like this
Thank u for ur response
bye

U could also use the CStdioFile class to write text files.  First U override the ON_FILE_NEW ON_FILE_OPEN ON_FILE_SAVE messages in the view class of your document. Call the CFileDialog manually and use the fileclass mentioned above.  More details on msdn.microsoft.com/library
