QuestionOpening a Second File from Explorer Pin
wdolson18-Feb-16 23:02
Memberwdolson18-Feb-16 23:02 
I'm working in MFC under Visual Studio 2010.

I've got my program associated with a file extension and clicking on a file of that type in Windows Explorer will open the program and load that file. All's well so far. Now I need to be able to click on another file of the type from WE and load that file into the same instance of the program already running. What happens now when I click on another file is the focus just switches to the program and nothing loads.

When the program isn't running and you click on a file associated with it, the program starts and in the loading of the App instance you check the command line, which is loaded into a CCommandLineInfo structure and the program deals with the command. I can't figure out how to get the second file to load when the program is already running by selecting it in WE (opening a file from within the program has been working fine from the start).

I have looked at WM_ACTIVATE and WM_ACTIVATEAPP which are called when the program gets focus while running, but I don't know how you would get the information about the file just selected in Windows Explorer. I'm probably missing some key terminology in my searches. I can't find any information on how to do this. Maybe I'm slow kid in class today...

Additionally if I select multiple files in Windows Explorer and open them at the same time, it opens multiple instances of the program instead of opening one instance any loading those files into that one instance. Is there any way to handle that?

Thanks
