How to skip the New Document dialog

-->

There is a simple way how to go round the dialog which appears when your app uses more than one document template and you click the 'new' button. You can open any document directly. Here is a small example of function which opens all documents from your document template at once.

void CMyApp::OnOpenAllTypesOfDocuments()
{
  POSITION pos = GetFirstDocTemplatePosition();
  CDocTemplate* pTemplate = GetNextDocTemplate(pos);
  pTemplate->OpenDocumentFile(NULL);  // creates the first document

  pTemplate = GetNextDocTemplate(pos);
  pTemplate->OpenDocumentFile(NULL);  // creates the second document

  // etc...
}

    When creating a new doc template, the corresponding
    resource ID should be specified as the first argument
    of a constructor.

    The resource ID needs to be verified in details.
    As the MSDN library specifies, there are three fields
    that are related to the New dialog and Open dialog.

    CDocTemplate::fileNewName
    CDocTemplate::filterName
    CDocTemplate::filterExt

    If we remove all the above three fields when constructing
    the every other resource IDs' string except the default template ID's string, we can make it work!

    Because Doc manager is also deleting the template, then you have to do it by yourself.

    // FIRST ONE has ADDocTemplate
    CSingleDocTemplate* pDocTemplate;
    pDocTemplate = new CSingleDocTemplate(
    IDR_MAINFRAME,
    RUNTIME_CLASS(CUltraCaptureDoc),
    RUNTIME_CLASS(CMainFrame), // main SDI frame window
    RUNTIME_CLASS(CUltraCaptureView));
    AddDocTemplate(pDocTemplate);


    //SECOND template
    m_pInputViewTemplate = new CSingleDocTemplate(
    IDR_MAINFRAME,
    RUNTIME_CLASS(CUltraCaptureDoc),
    RUNTIME_CLASS(CMainFrame), // main SDI frame window
    RUNTIME_CLASS(CSetingsView));
    //***DON"t AddDocTemplate(pDocTemplate2);


    On destructor
    delete m_pInputViewTemplate;

  • With JRebel, developers get to see their code changes immediately, fine-tune their code with incremental changes, debug, explore and deploy their code with ease (both locally and remotely), and ultimately spend more time coding instead of waiting for the dreaded application redeploy to finish. Every time a developer tests a code change it takes minutes to build and deploy the application. JRebel keeps the app server running at all times, so testing is instantaneous and interactive.

  • The impact of a data loss event can be significant. Real-time data is essential to remaining competitive. Many companies can no longer afford to rely on a truck arriving each day to take backup tapes offsite. For most companies, a cloud backup and recovery solution will eliminate, or significantly reduce, IT resources related to the mundane task of backup and allow your resources to be redeployed to more strategic projects.
