MDI - overriding OnFileClose

Hi experts,

When I override OnFileClose in my view, what do I call to do the closing after I'm done my personal code to close the view?  I've replaced the mechanism that does the closing and the window stays open... I don't want this of course..

Basically - I'm just calling my save function - and if it doesn't work - I don't want to close (or something like that) - my point is, it's never closing now and I want it to close after calling my OnFileSave function....

Thanks :-)

If you review OnFileClose() source code implementation, you will find this:

void CDocument::OnFileClose()
     if (!SaveModified())

     // shut it down
     // this should destroy the document

SaveModified will determine filename, ask you if you want to save or not, and finally call DoFileSave() if needed.

OnCloseDocument() will close all doc's views and delete the self doc object.

So, you just have to replace the SaveModified funcion with your own, leave OnCloseDocument() call.
