Hi,

I need to open a telnet session within my application and
I was wondering if I could use telnet.exe and "dock" it
within my framewindow just like any CView? It could be
resized, minimized, maximized and would show up in the
"Windows" menu item just like any doc/view... but it would
be "contained" within my application and now a shelled out
process...

Is this possible? How to go about doing it???

Thanks

This isn't possible. But, why don't you 'just' integrate some telnet server code like the one here:

You should be able to easily adapt the telnetview project into your project.

I tried to include the CTelnetView (which is SDI) into my
project (which is MDI) and when the Telnetview starts
it seems to hand in ProcessOptions() and just wait there
hogging the cpu! Must I create a thread separatly???

Here is how I open the ctelnetview:
CFrameWnd* pFrameWnd= NULL;
CTelnetView* pView;
CMyApp* pApp= (CMyApp*)AfxGetApp();
tDocMap::iterator d= m_DocMap.find(aHost); // map<string, CMDIChildWnd*>

if (d == m_DocMap.end())
{
 pApp->BeginWaitCursor();
 CTelnetDoc* pDocument = (CTelnetDoc*) pApp->m_pTelnetDocTemplate->CreateNewDocument();
 pDocument->SetPathName(aHost);
 pDocument->SetTitle(aHost);
 pFrameWnd= pApp->m_pTelnetDocTemplate->CreateNewFrame(pDocument,NULL);
 ASSERT(pFrameWnd);
 pApp->m_pTelnetDocTemplate->InitialUpdateFrame(pFrameWnd,pDocument);
 POSITION pos= pDocument->GetFirstViewPosition();
 ASSERT(pos != NULL);
 pView= (CTelnetView*)pDocument->GetNextView(pos);
 ASSERT(pView != NULL);
 ((CMDIChildWnd*) pView->GetParentFrame())->MDIMaximize();
 m_DocMap.insert(std::pair<std::string, CMDIChildWnd*>(aHost,((CMDIChildWnd*) pView->GetParentFrame())));
 pView->GetDocument()->SetTitle(aHost);
 pApp->EndWaitCursor();
}
else
 {
  if (d != m_DocMap.end())
 (*d).second->MDIActivate();
 }

anything wrong with that setup???
Suggestions?

I should point out that this code (to open a telnet view) is
within a singleton object which acts as a window controller.
Maybe the way I create the ctelnetview is wrong and that's
why it does not works as a MID... it keeps looping in its
processingoption function...

oh well, never mind :/
I decided to simply shell out to dos, much simpler
awaiting time when I can build a Formview using a control


thanks for your time.
