Hi! I have a problem I have to solve and after digging through thousands of documents I still can't find an answer. What I want to do is to create a ribbon style MFC frame window and add a custom control in the client area. I also really don't want to use document/view stuff as I don't have a document and the structure is mess. As far as I understand CView that is used in doc/view is actually a window, but I don't get it how to attach a regular hWnd to frame if I don't use the architecture. Simply creating window in client area seems to add it on top of status and ribbon bars which is not the 'visual' client area I'm after. Does anyone know something about this MFC mess?

Is there at least a good tutorial explaining what is a view, how it is created and how to make it from regular HWND?
