    Thumbs up GUI and dialog

    Anyone knows how to create a dialog-based application that can plenty views. In the main UI, when a button is selected, a view corresponding to this click is displayed, instead of displaying another dialog. So that all dialogs are switched back and forth.

    any input is a big help... thank you.

    Not too sure what you are trying to achieve....


    If you want a display that allows multiple views in one window, then try a Tab Control. This is a type of common control.

    Lookup WC_TABCONTROL on MSDN

    Me neither, but you could build a series of child windows displaying whatever it is you want in whatever format you want but have them disabled, and then enable whichever is appropriate in the button message handler.
