1. Create a MFC AppWizard(exe)/ MFC Application based project
2. In the Application Settings select Single Document

This will bring you the default menu.
3. Add a dialog and class for that dialog , say CTextReader
4. You can handle the command events for the toolbar menu that appears by default instead of new button. For example you can use the File->New menu or 'New' toolbar button.
5. Go to the classwizard for the mainframe and add a event handler for the item ID_FILE_NEW
and add the following code to  pop up the dialog on the 'New' button click
void CMainFrame::OnFileNew()
{
      // TODO: Add your command handler code here
      CTextReader *pDialog = new CTextReader();
      BOOL ret = pDialog->Create(IDD_DIALOG1,this);
    pDialog->ShowWindow(SW_SHOW);

      
}

6.Refer to this for opening existing file and showing it on the dialog
