Lesson 4. The Document View Architecture

At some point, you have undoubtedly used a Windows application that works with documents and views, whether or not you called them by these names. The most common example of this is almost any Windows-based word processing application. In this lesson, you will explore how you can use MFC to help you create applications such as the one just described, as well as some that are quite different in appearance but have the same underlying structure.

You will learn how to

  • Use the document view architecture in MFC.
  • Use the view classes provided by MFC.
  • Add menus, status bars, toolbars, and splitters to your application.
