SDI and MDI
MFC Document View Architecture can have two types of applications. SDI and MDI. SDI stands for Single Document Interfce where as MDI stands for Multiple document interface.
Single Document Interfaing (SDI)
This type of application can deal with a single document and single view of the document at one point of time. There is no way to open another document in the same application.
Only way to open another document is to launch another instance of the application and open the anothe document. Notepad, Wordpad are such application in Windows.
Multiple Document Interfae (MDI)
This type of application can deal with multiple documents and views of the documents at one point of time. Thus many documents can be opened and can be edited at any point of time.
There is no need to open new application instance to open a new document. Visual Studio/Visual C++ editor and many other source code editors are good example of this MDI design.
