I want to push this discussion to its own topic/thread which was brought up here regarding "Active" MDI behavior when using the new floating MDI feature:

We are wanting to use XTP 20.3 with VS 2019.

We built the GUI_VisualStudio sample app.  When you float an MDI file and give the floating MDI child focus, the Save button CCmdUI status and OnClick behavior are applied to the Active Main Frame MDI window, not the focused MDI floating view.

The actual VS 2019 supports tear-off MDI children and the main toolbar behavior is applied as expected when a floating MDI child has focus.  This is the desired behavior.

So the question becomes, without that behavior, we will need to have a local toolbar (toolbar set?) on every floating MDI view that replicates a subset of the main frame's toolbar set?

I'm do not want to trivialize the solution - the desired behavior is simple to verbalize, but I realize the solution is non-trivial (my knowledge of intimate MFC internals is limited, but this I believe is true):
Message routing gets strange
Active MDI behavior get strange
MDIGetActive behavior comes into question
MDIActivate similarly (can it be called on a floating MDI view?)

Or is a better perspective to accept that it is similar to a dockable/floatable view, except that it can (easily) be "docked" as an MDI child?

EDIT: Please ignore this post - I obviously was not seeing what I thought I saw.  So far, GUI_VisualStudio is behaving as expected.  Apologies.

Now I see what I saw LOL

I had ONE floating MDI child, but I CLOSED all the "docked" MDI children, so when I had focus on the floating MDI child, I expected the SAVE/SAVE-ALL icons to STILL BE ENABLED, but they were DISABLED:



This could be a bug in the GUI_VisualStudio SAMPLE, or a bug in the XTP Toolkit??
