Hi Sansky,

I've found the following article very helpful for doing this type of thing:
http://www.microsoft.com/mind/defaulttop.asp?page=/mind/0497/mfc.htm&nav=/mind/0497/inthisissuecolumns0497.htm

There is a neat CActiveXDocControl class that you can use to create MFC ActiveX controls that use the doc/view architecture. In your case, you'll be able to get your formview into your control by adding a form to your project, and substituting the newly created CFormView-derived class that your new form is hooked up to in the call to AddDocTemplate. After that, you will be able to manage your control in a way similarl to any regular doc/view app, for instance, getting pointers to your Document, Frame, and View from various places using GetDocument(), GetParentFrame(), GetActiveView().

Hope this helps!

Regards,
Mike

Hi,
Thanks for the help. I found this article and worked it out,
but found that it works for CView. For CFormView there are
few more things that needs to be done. Although I worked out
that. I will give you the points.

Thanks
