    Question Child Window Help

    When I create a child window it successfully appears but is inactive. The caption is grayed out and clicking on it will allow the window to move around, but won't activate it. The window will accept mouse input, but not keyboard. The child window is not intended for an MDI and I'm not using MFC.

    I'd apreciate it if someone can explain what I'm doing wrong.

    Thanks to anyone who can help.
