Modeless dialog and accelerators

I've got some modeless dialogs inside a CFormView (like a CPropertyPage/Sheet). The accelerators don't work when focus is on one of the dialogs.
Any idea how I can make them work?

Hi,
Try the following:
Set the "control" property for each of your dialog which you are using inside the CFormView. This property is available in the "More Styles" tab of the dialog properties in the VC++ dialog editor.

I really expected that to work, given the description of the control property in the online help. I applied the control property to the dialogs, but unfortunately I still got the same problem. If you made it work, can you give me some details on what you did?

Can you elaborate on how exactly you are using the form view? I had the same problem and got solved by setting the "control" property. One more thing which also worked with me is setting "control parent" property in "extended styles" tab. But if your dialogs are derived from CPropertyPage, then this won't work since Property pages donot yet support dialog templates with extended styles.  
Hope this works.

Hi again,
