    Question dialogbox as subwindow

    Hi, Everyone,

    I am designing an applicatin whose appearance may be same with MSVC. Now I want to make a Dialogbox as a subwindow(just like the "workspace" subwindow), but I have no idea about what I should do. And also i don't want to use MFC. Can you give me some help?

    Thanks.

    Any chance you might work on your terminology there bub?
    Do you mean an MDI child window?

    I believe that he wants to use dialog boxes defined in a resource file to make an MDI.

    edit: See this thread: make Child Dialog not Popup?

    Sorry for my awful expression.

    I mean i want a dialogbox dock or undock in my SDI/MDI window, just like the "workspace" window in MSVC.

    Look at the 'bar' controls

    toolbar,
    rebar or coolbar
    dialogbar


    MFC base class is the CControlBar

    >>And also i don't want to use MFC.

    Pity. That means that you will have to find third party code or write most of your own. (as opposed to just adding using the resource editor)

    Is there a reason not to use MFC? (apart from 'I don't like M$')

    Hehe, it may be my prejudice... because i always think MFC is made so complex.

    now i know it also has many excellences... ok, i will use it.

    thanks.
