It depends what you mean by "name".

CView* pView = ((CMainFrame*)AfxGetMainWnd())->GetActiveView()

gets the currently active view.  Now you can use that in several different ways:

// Get the title of the MDI child window
pView->GetParentFrame()->GetWindowText(strName);
// Get the file name
pView->GetDocument()->GetPathName();

Hope this helps.

MDIGetActive() returns the currently active MDI child window:

CMDIChildWnd* MDIGetActive( BOOL* pbMaximized = NULL ) const;

CMDIChildWnd is derived from CFrameWnd, which is derived from CWnd. So, you can use CWnd::GetWindowText() method to get the name of this window.

Simply, Use the method:

CWnd* GetActiveWindow();
