OK, I got what you mean.

But another problem is that how to access the six VIEW's pointer in DOC?

And how the six VIEWs access the DOC?

My beginning work(just split MainFrame into two regions(or windows?)) is the

//**** code *****
at MainFrm.cpp:
BOOL CMainFrame::OnCreateClient(LPCREATESTRUCT lpcs, CCreateContext*
        m_wndSplitter.CreateStatic(this, 1, 2);
    m_wndSplitter.CreateView(0, 0, RUNTIME_CLASS(CXXXView1), CSize(200,400),
    m_wndSplitter.CreateView(0, 1, RUNTIME_CLASS(CXXXView2), CSize(400,400),

at DOC:
        CXXXView* pXXXView = NULL;
    POSITION pos = GetFirstViewPosition();
    CView* pView = NULL;

    while( pos != NULL )
        pView = GetNextView( pos );
        if( pView->IsKindOf(RUNTIME_CLASS(CXXXView)) == TRUE )
                pXXXView = (CXXXView*)pView;

at VIEW1 and VIEW2:
CXXXDoc *pDoc = (CXXXDoc*)GetDocument();

//**** code *****

It works in my working project. But my question is that is it the correct way?

If yes, can I conclude one fact that the split six regions in MainFrame is
bounded with DOC by the following codes?! And I can use the way above to get
the pointer of DOC in VIEW1~VIEW6, also I can get the pointer of VIEW1~VIEW6
in DOC?

//***** code ******
at MyApp.cpp:
CSingleDocTemplate* pDocTemplate;
    pDocTemplate = new CSingleDocTemplate(
//****** code ********

There are two ways to do it. If you want the user to be able to resize the
regions then you would use splitter windows. If resizing is not important
you could do it all by placing 6 controls on a single CFormView.

For splitters, you create splitter windows inside splitter windows. For
example, the first splitter contains region 1 and regions 23456. The second
splitter fills 23456 and splits 6 and 2345. Then a third splitter splits up
2, 3, 4 and 5. The VIEWEX MFC sample has an example of splitters in

If you don't need the splitter features then create all controls on a
CFormView. In CMainFrame::OnSize you would reposition and resize all 6
controls to fill the CMainFrame new size.

Hi, all

The following is my desired UI layout:

| 1 |
| 2 | 3 | |
| | | |
------------------------- 6 |
| 4 | 5 | |
| | | |

The region 2 is the tree view of the folders in my local PC, and region 3
will show the thumbnails of image files that in the folder selected in the
region 2.

The region 4 is the tree view of the folders in remote PC(I've created a
local folder in my PC for it, so it just a local folder in my PC in
developement stage), and region 5 wil show the thumbnails of image files
in the folder selected in the region 4.

The region 1 will show the selected image files in the region 3.

The region 6 have some functions that can perform on the selected image
in the region 3.

Is any one can tell how to achieve that!?

Below are what I thought:
Use SDI.
Also write a MyMainFrame class with CSplitterWnd that split the main frame
into six region.
Then write a DOC class and six VIEWs for each region.
But I don't know how to bound and use the VIEWs and DOC with MyMainFrame
that can achieve my desired goal.

Thanks for your anwsers.
