File Transfer Monitor Dialog

I have a new idea for my program. To give a background, it has an MDI where each document represents a connection to a server. I am thinking about making a single window to monitor downloads from the servers so there isn't a window for every download. I plan to do this by using a CListCtrl and drawing a progress bar where the last column of a line is. The OnTimer() of the dialog will cycle through all documents looking for active downloads via a list kept of them in the document and display them in this list. Correct me if I am wrong but, I am thinking that the dialog should be a member of the MainFrame. Because it has to go through all the active documents. Am I correct in assuming this approach? Any suggestions are welcome. Thank you.

>> how do you cycle through open documents via the frame????

      CWinApp* pApp = AfxGetApp();

      POSITION pos = pApp->GetFirstDocTemplatePosition();

      while (pos)
      {
            CDocTemplate* pTemplate = (CDocTemplate*)pApp->GetNextDocTemplate(pos);
            POSITION pos2 = pTemplate->GetFirstDocPosition();
            while (pos2)
            {
                  CDocument * pDocument;
                  if ((pDocument=pTemplate->GetNextDoc(pos2)) != NULL)
                  {
                        POSITION posView = pDocument->GetFirstViewPosition();

                        // Here u get the view, add into array to keep the view pointer
                        CView* pView = pDocument->GetNextView(posView);
                  }
            }
      }


And your downloading progress:
Flashget software is also doing something like that.

Nice stuff to look at. I would probably like to get rid of the overhead of having all those CProgressCtrl's in my dialog. So drawing directly to the DC and filling in the subitem that way looks great. Thank you for your "to the point" answer.   :)   Always a pleasue giving you the points Rosh.

Hey...do you think I should keep a "master list of downloads" in the frame class or in the dialog itself?

>> frame class or in the dialog itself?
frame class is better, set its pointer or reference to dialog for showing status
