Hi whselfinvest,

this usually is not done done in the CDocument-derived class since this doesn't fit to MVC paradigma. The common way is to add a message handler for WM_LBUTTONDBLCLK in the related CView-derived class, there it's possible to access the document (via CView::GetDocument) to execute any actions on it.

A description for how to add such a message handler can be found here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa232230%28v=vs.60%29.aspx

Hope that helps,

ZOPPO
