Best Practice? (Dialog vs .. Not Dialog?)
Well, as i am going through MSDN, trying to gather enough information to start peicing together anything not from a tutorial,
i relized aside from functioning differently (doing little nifty things here and there), Do i need a dialog?
Now dialogs look decent, their structure looks good and all so that may be the reason i use them..
But honestly, all buttons, textfields (user input and program output), combo boxes, lists, ect.. are all just overglorified windows correct? Atleast thats the way theForgers tutorials made me feel. Everything is treated like a window, which makes sense in the most low level aspect, having the parent / child thing going on.
But with all that said, strictly on terms of "Controls" (buttons, textfields(input & output), combo boxes, ect..), is there any advantage to using normal Windows vs Dialog Boxes?
