Does anyone know anything about the MDICLIENT window that actually covers
the client area of a CMDIFrameWnd? I am wondering if it is possible (or
advisable anyway) to move the 0,0 placement of this window so that I can
reserve a bit of the client area of my CMDIFrameWnd for something else.
If I do this (and I'm open for suggestion on how) will I be able to put
any of my MDI children to the left of 0,0?
What I am after here is a CView derrivation that is "Docked" to the left
hand side of a CMDIFrameWnd and I do not want to have to re-write the
Tile, Cascade etc commands. So I figure if I put my "Docked" CView over
on the left then move the MDICLIENT 0,0 to the right hand edge of the
forementioned CView I'd be in good shape.
Am I making any sense?
