    MDI or SDI - that is the question...


    Recently dived into the world of MFC and things are coming togeather.

    I am currently attempting to put togeather a program for learning
    purposes that will have the following.

    1) View for a database
    2) View for a text editor
    3) View for a web browser

    So far I can setup all the views in my MDI project... however
    I would like all these views selectable from the main menu. Currently I am prompted to pick a document to open.

    If possible I would also like to save the created text documents to the database.

    I am not sure if I should be using SDI instead or another approach.

    All advice welcomed.

    Thanks

    MDI sounds more like it.

    As the user may want to open more than one text doc or web page at once.

    Otherwise the user will have to compleat all wih the single view before moving on to the next.
    The essence of Christianity is told us in the Garden of Eden history. The fruit that was forbidden was on the Tree of Knowledge. The subtext is, All the suffering you have is because you wanted to find out what was going on. You could be in the Garden of Eden if you had just kept your f***ing mouth shut and hadn't asked any questions.
