Hi

I have a MDI app that has two document types. When it starts I want to open an instance
of the first document automatically but cannot workout how to do this before the framework
displays the select document dialog.

Can anyone help
Thanks

//Handle command ID_FILE_NEW
BEGIN_MESSAGE_MAP(CdcmviewerApp, CWinApp)

      ON_COMMAND(ID_FILE_NEW, OnFileNew)

END_MESSAGE_MAP()

void CdcmviewerApp::OnFileNew()
{
      m_pSearchDocTemplate->OpenDocumentFile(NULL); //CMultiDocTemplate* m_pSearchDocTemplate;
      CMainFrame *pMainFrame = (CMainFrame*)AfxGetMainWnd();
      CMDIChildWnd* pMDIActive = pMainFrame->MDIGetActive();
      SearchView *pview = (SearchView*)pMDIActive->GetActiveView();
      pMDIActive->GetActiveDocument()->SetTitle(_T("Readme"));
      pMDIActive->SetTitle(_T("Readme"));
      pMainFrame->MDIMaximize(pMDIActive);
      pMainFrame->MDIActivate(pMDIActive);//activate the view so that WM_KEYDOWN can work

}

Thanks for the reply.

I know how to open a particular document from code the problem
is when you have two document types and the app is starting up. The OnFileNew
command is not used by the framework at this point when it prompts
you to select the document you want to open. I want to stop this dialog
from being displayed and do it automatically. Your code will do this, but only if
the user selects File>New.

Thanks

override another method

CDocument* CdcmviewerApp::OpenDocumentFile(LPCTSTR lpszFileName)
