Thanks for replying.The tabbed view idea seems good, but not sure it
would go with the requirements, will have to check.

Regarding, destroying the view and creating new one in place, the
issue here is that every doc type also has a framewnd associated with
it. So some doc types require framewnd havin single splitter, some
require framewnds having 2 splitters etc.So, not sure how to achieve
this by just changing the view of the current child window.

Two things come to mind one is a tabbed view, where all you doc types =

The other is to only have one Template with a view that is going to ac=

would be to tell the CDocument object that the doc type that the user

The SetDocType method will save the doc type and calls UpdateAllViews.
container view overrides the OnUpdate and checks the doc type against =


current doc type, and if different destroys the current view and creat=


new one.

But I must say the Tabbed view is more appealing.

I have a MDI app with multiple document templates added in it. So
there is a hierarchy of document, view and framewindow classes such
that a view, document and framewnd classes are associated through a

Now, there are date-wise files for each document type, i.e for a
particular date, there are as many files as there are doc types.
Opening a document opens it in a child window

What I want to implement is to add a drop down list to the child
window which will list the other document types for that date.
Selecting a different doc type from drop down should
1. Close the existing document open in the child window
2. Open the new doc of selected type for current date in the existin=


child window and NOT in a new child window.

I want to know if this is possible and how to go about it. I am
getting confused because I am not able to figure out how this will
work because I am trying to retain the old child window, which is of=


particular framewnd class and open a totally new document type in th=


window, with which it is not associated through any doc template.
Hope I have explained my problem. Any inputs will be highly
Thanks in advance.
