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;
