Creating windows with controls in client area

Creating windows with controls in client area

Hello to you all!

I am new to VC++ and I was wondering how to create a form (not dialog based) - single document type, but with no document support..., that has controls (buttons, listviews) in its client area and also is able to have a menu. And to imagine better what I mean take a look at Windows' Find Files tool. I would like to create a similar interface which doesn't have the white space client area inside the form and which doesn't really fit in the predefined MFC application templates. Any piece of advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Regards: dex

RE: Creating windows with controls in client area

Dear dex,

In the Application Wizard choose 'Single Document' application, Leave the 'Document/View architecture support' selected. Then in step 6 derive your view class from 'CFormView'

>single document type, but with no document support...,

Even though this configuration will generate a document class for the framework you are not required to use it in any specific way. If you choose to implement your applications data in a different fashion you are free to do so.

Good luck
