Variable splitter views

Here is a class that implements an MDI Frame (CMDIChildWnd) which shows a number of variable views (up to 4 views).

The Class (CBaseVarFrame) is reusable.

It implement four new commands :

ID_SPLITTER_NESSUNO (Just Default View,no splitter)  // status = 0
ID_SPLITTER_UNO ( 2 Views ,Default View on the left pane,1 view in the right pane)  // status = 1
ID_SPLITTER_DUE ( 3 Views,Default View on the left pane,2 views in the right pane)  // status = 2
ID_SPLITTER_TREE (4 Views,Default View on the left pane,3 views in the right pane) // status = 3

To use the class you have two choices:

A) method 1

derive your class
class CMYFrame : public CBaseVarFrame
// use a static array of your runtime views
static    CRuntimeClass* myClass[3] =
{RUNTIME_CLASS(CView1),RUNTIME_CLASS(CView2),RUNTIME_CLASS(CView3)};

// Overrides the method

void CMYFrame::OnConfigViews()
{
  ConfigViews(myClass,  // array of RuntimeClass of Views
                            3,  // number of max of Views on the right pane
                            0); // initial status (see above)
}

B) method 2

Use the configurable class CBaseVariableFrame which allows you to use it directly ,just put this code in your application methos InitInstance() :
CMultiDocTemplate* pDocTemplate;
  pDocTemplate = new CMultiDocTemplate(
  IDR_VARSPLTYPE,
  RUNTIME_CLASS(CVarSplitDoc),
  RUNTIME_CLASS(CBaseVariableFrame), // custom MDI child frame
  RUNTIME_CLASS(CVarSplitView));       // your default views (left pane)
AddDocTemplate(pDocTemplate);

// TO DO : config your frame
CBaseVariableFrame::SetConfiguration(myClass,3,0);
// END CONFIG

In my example I use the second method

BaseVarFrame.cpp BaseVarFrame.h    (base class)
ChildFrm.cpp ChildFrame.h   (configurable base class)

    ...but I do not know, how to do it.

    I have replaced:
    CMultiDocTemplate -> CSingleDocTemplate
    CMDIChildWnd -> CFrameWnd
    class CMainFrame : public CFrameWnd -> class CMainFrame : public CBaseVarFrame

    But, it does not work.

    Could you help me? Please.

    I am trying to create the application that has one document class, and 2 view classes that are sharing the same document. I have SDI application and created the splitter feature on my primary view class, but the second view classes won't connect with the document class that primary view class is using. what should i do to make it work?
