CWinApp::OnFileOpen();

Is a standard function to open a file!
The function itself does not open the file, but returns a path string Right ?, where is that string returned ?

How does OnFileOpen work ?

The OnOpenFile is suposed to be use with SDI/MDI applications. The OnOpenFile displays an open file dialog, gets the file name and calls the CWinApp::OnOpenDocument with the file path chosed by user.

CWinApp::OnFileOpen
afx_msg void OnFileOpen( );

It is void.  It does not return anything.

From the looks of it, it's stored in a
dlgFile.m_ofn.lpstrFile
that can be retrieved from the
CFileDialog::GetFileName() function.

You need to override the OnFileOpen.
I chose (for this example) to do it in the View, but it can be done anywhere the ID_FILE_OPEN message is passed.

void CMy20179379View::OnFileOpen()
{
     CFileDialog     xDlg
          (
          TRUE, //BOOL bOpenFileDialog,
          NULL, //LPCTSTR lpszDefExt = NULL,
          NULL, //LPCTSTR lpszFileName = NULL,
          (OFN_HIDEREADONLY | OFN_OVERWRITEPROMPT),// DWORD dwFlags = OFN_HIDEREADONLY | OFN_OVERWRITEPROMPT,
          "*.exx",//LPCTSTR lpszFilter = NULL,
          NULL//CWnd* pParentWnd = NULL
          );
     xDlg.DoModal();
     AfxMessageBox(xDlg.GetFileName());
}

Have a look at CFile::Open.

I just have a suspicion this is what you are really after.

Apologies if I am wrong.

markp, that's practically what I said except I didn't use a pointer to create the dialog box and I used AfxMessageBox to display the string.

The code I posted shows all of the parameters for customizing the CFileDialog at creation.

I copied that directly from a test app.
There is no 'easier' concept involved with either of our examples.  You've confused me.
