Its just been a week of MFC so please forgive the lame question.

Why is it that design time position of controls is only posible on Dialog
and not on a CFrameWnd. For example If I chose not to create a Dialog based
applcation and chose SDI based instead. I go in to the code and removed the
default CFormView stuff. Then how can I start adding CButton, Cedit like
controls design time on the the CFrameWnd ( like Dialog). The resource ID for
the default CFrameWnd is IDR_FRAME, double clicking on it gives me string
file and not a design time visual of CframeWnd.

Design time controls are defined by a dialog template, which is the only
control container that you can edit. CFrameWnd does not have a dialog
template associated with it.

To use a dialog template you must use CDialog or CFormView. CFormView
is the correct approach for an SDI or MDI based program. Why did you
remove the "CFormView stuff"? It would seem to be what you want.
