Dialog resources as child windows ...
Before I start, I'm using MS VC 6.0, and straight C + API only.
I have created a very basic window - WS_EX_APPWINDOW + WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW - no other creation paramerters.
What i want to do is design, in the resource editor, a panel with various contols on - which I can then display (as a child window) in the main window. Basically it will act as a way for user to enter information when necessary, and be hidden when not needed. This, I reitterate is not a dialog box, but and IDD_FORMVIEW type thing.
How the hell do I get it displayed on the main window?
It's called IDD_LEFT_PANEL. I assume I need to use CreateWindowEx with a WS_CHILD parameter. But apart from that I'm stuck. Can anyone point me in the right direction.
BTW - i've searched everywhere for this.
(PS - no MFC)
