    Question Sequence of Window Events in MFC

    Hi,

    Can someone point to a resource which explains the sequence in which various events are fired when a Window is created? I am specially interested in the events fired for creation/ showing a MDIChildWnd.

    Why don't you step through it in the debugger and see exactly what it does.

    Question Re: Sequence of Window Events in MFC

    You mean that I implement all the overridable methods, and then set breakpoints on each of them, and then take notes which one got called first, and which one was second, and so on?

    Shouldn't this behavior already be documented somewhere?

    Documentation is here:

    msdn.com

    The section on MDI is here:
    MSDN Library -> Windows Development -> Windows Application UI Development -> Windows and Messages -> Multiple Document Interface (MDI)

    Heres the direct link:
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...(v=VS.85).aspx

    No, I meant just step through it. No need to implement anything and only one breakpoint required.
