Iterate through all open child frames

Hi,

I have a wizard generated MDI application. How can I iterate through all open child frames? I know how to do this in the general case, but my child frames are all using splitter windows. This always returns NULL in this case:

        POSITION posView = pDoc->GetFirstViewPosition();

for my other 'normal' child frame types, it works fine.

Thanks

Hello, I use a loop like this in my VB.NET code:

Dim ChildForm As Form
For Each ChildForm In Me.MdiChildren
    [code here like ChildForm.GetType.Tostring or whatever info you need for the child]

Try this.
void CMainFrame::OnCountFrames()
{
      POSITION posTemplate = theApp.m_pDocManager->GetFirstDocTemplatePosition() ;
      while(posTemplate != NULL)
      {
            CDocTemplate* pDocTemp = theApp.m_pDocManager->GetNextDocTemplate(posTemplate) ;

            POSITION posDoc = pDocTemp->GetFirstDocPosition() ;
            while(posDoc != NULL)
            {
                  CDocument* pDoc = pDocTemp->GetNextDoc(posDoc) ;
                  POSITION posView = pDoc->GetFirstViewPosition() ;
                  if(posView != NULL)
                  {
                        CView* pView = pDoc->GetNextView(posView) ;            
                        CString szName ;
                        pView->GetParentFrame()->GetWindowText(szName) ;
                        AfxMessageBox(szName) ;
                  }
            }
      }
}
