Why cant you use CreateNewFrame instead of doing all this?

sorry it not make sense to you. I knew it was a difficult question to ask.
But had to do the following to get it to work:

BOOL CSystemFrame::Create()
        ASSERT(mSysDoc == NULL);
        // TODO: Add your specialized code here and/or call the base class
        CCreateContext context;
        mSysDoc = new CSysDoc();

        context.m_pCurrentDoc = mSysDoc;

        return CMDIChildWnd::Create(NULL, _T("System Configuration"), WS_CHILD |
                                                                rectDefault, NULL,&context);


And then it all works... So needed to create my own context as this gets
passed into the splitter etc and then i needed to do the following

        CView* pView = (CView*)m_wndSplitter.GetPane(0,1);

        pView = (CView*)m_wndSplitter.GetPane(0,0);


BOOL CSystemFrame::OnCreateClient(LPCREATESTRUCT /*lpcs*/, CCreateContext*

Hope this makes sense now?

I don't understand. If you have your own MDIChildFrame, that's fine. You would use this
frame class in your document template.

This would be created with the normal mechanisms; you don't have to use a File>New menu
item to create a document, you can just invoke the creation mechanism of the template.

Here's the code I use to do this:

CDocument * CFontExplorerApp::NewItem(CMultiDocTemplate * templ)
     CDocument * doc = templ->CreateNewDocument();
     ASSERT(doc != NULL);
     if(doc == NULL)
        return NULL;

     CFrameWnd * frame = templ->CreateNewFrame(doc, NULL);
     if(frame == NULL)
        { /* failed to create */
         delete doc;
         return NULL;
        } /* failed to create */

     templ->InitialUpdateFrame(frame, doc, TRUE);
     return doc;
    } // CFontExplorerApp::NewItem

How can i manually add my own CDocument derivative to a CView deriative?

I have created my own MDIChildFrame with a splitter a two formviews and want
each to share the same document.

So this document does not get created via the usual file new procedure or
doc template stuff.

I cannot find an easy way to set the document of each view?
