I need to re-name the title of a window for one of the documents in a MDI project.  I have the handle for the document - how do I get the handle for the window for that document so I can change it's title?

    Hi ied168i,

    there's no need to find the document's window(s) - you can use CDocument::SetTitle to change the title shown in the window's caption.

    Hope that helps,
