I have an MDI application and I changed my CChildFrame class declaration to the following:

class CChildFrame : public CExtNCW < CMDIFrameWnd >

so the child frames would be painted with the current theme. I have code in this class to ensure a minimum size for the frame. The code is handled in the "OnGetMinMaxInfo" handler. Since I changed the class declaration, it seems that this code is ignored. In other words, I am now able to resize the frame beyond the minimum.

Am I doing something wrong in regards to my class declaration? Do I need to now handle the sizing differently?

The CExtNCW template is not fully compatible with CMDIChildWnd at the moment. We are working on this feature now.

Dear Jeremy,

Please override the CWnd::WindowProc() virtual method to handle the WM_GETMINMAXINFO message:

LRESULT CChildView::WindowProc( UINT message, WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam )
    if( message == WM_GETMINMAXINFO )
        MINMAXINFO * pMMI = (MINMAXINFO *)lParam;

        . . .

        return 0;
    return CExtNCW < CMDIFrameWnd > :: WindowProc( message, wParam, lParam );

I also received a message from ’Technical Support’ that states CMDIFrameWnd is not supported for the CExtNCW template class. I did some searching on the forum and found others to have had some problems (other than just frame size) with CMDIFrameWnd and CExtNCW. So I guess what I am trying to ask is, should we use it? If so, can we use it with confidence?

Please note that we did not say that CMDIFrameWnd is not supported for the CExtNCW template class. What we said is that CExtNCW is not fully compatible with CMDIChildWnd. So we do not recommend you use this template for MDI child windows at the moment.
