    Create() question

    OK guys, this is a tricky one (at least for me)....
    I have a MDI application that creates a normal MainFrame wich is initiated thru Create("Main Frame Title",NULL) .... now what I want is to have the main frame created with a frame insite it... don't know how to explane it very well....
    something like this:

    ---------------------------
    | | * |
    ---------------------------
    | |
    | |
    | |
    ===============
    | |
    | |
    ---------------------------

    so that I can give commands on the lower part of the frame and get resposes on the upper part of the frame.
    My ChildFrames I want them to be created normaly.
    I create the frame with Create("Main Frame", NULL) and I was having a look on this command and didn't found anything that seams what I'm looking for.....
    Can someone point me on the right direction and hopefully give me some Tutorial that might help me solve this problem...
    I don't know if you guys are going to understand what's my request, so, please, any constructive critic is more then welcome...

    Thanks

    Actually I think I do know what you're talking about - are you wanting to put a sort of partition in your main frame, dividing it in half, like having two main frames? And then have Child frames created normally inside each of those frames?

    no...
    I might have explained wrongly.
    The main frame is normal, but the first Child frame will be splited into two, the lower half will be use to give commands that will be interpreted in a server and the result of those commands will be outputed in the Upper part of the frame.
    The following frames ( each time I press new ), will have the usual apearance (not splited) cause I'll use them to load batch files into the same server.
