I'm creating Frame and View at Run Time, and I have static method where I'm trying to get pointer to my Mainframe

CMyView * CMyView::GetView()
{      
          CMainFrame* pFrame = (CMainFrame*)GetParentFrame(); //here I got an error (error C2352: 'CWnd::GetParentFrame' : illegal call of non-static member function)
         CMyView *pView = (CMyView *)pFrame->m_pSplitterWnd->GetPane(0,0);
        return (CMyView *) pView;
}
header file
static CMyView * GetView();

But I got an error "illegal call of non-static member function" .
Please help me how can I get a pointer to my Frame inside(or outside)  of this method??


Please help.
Thank you.

You can do this only from non-static function:

CMyView * GetView();    // without static keyword

What are you trying to do?

AfxGetMainWnd() should return the main window of the app (which should be the frame window or is this an MDIChildFrame?)

What are you trying to do?

I have dialog base App, when I click on some button I'm creating new window Frame and View.
In View class I have GetView to get pointer to my View(view with splitter):
CMyView * CMyView::GetView()
{    
        // This is way how I can get a pointer to my view
        CMyView *pView = (CMyView *)pFrame->m_pSplitterWnd->GetPane(0,0);
        return (CMyView *) pView;
}

GetView has to be Static function.
 The quastion how to get pointer to my Frame ???
I wonted to use CMainFrame* pFrame = (CMainFrame*)GetParentFrame(); , but it doesn't work in static function:(

Why does GetView need to be static?
