Hi, I am designing a MDI application and is hard to draw all child windows handly (let's say via code). I want to show a dialog/window designed in the Resource Workshop as a child window.
Thank You.

Make the MDI a frame window, and use the dialog as the frame's client.

Need more information.
Whe the user click on any option, a message with such ID in WPARAM is processed in the command handler. The called function, sends a message (WM_CREATE) to the MDIFrameWndProc handler, with a long pointer to a MDICREATESTRUCT struct, and this perform a CreateWindow and ShowWindow.
What I want is load a dialog from the resource not to CreateWindow and then paint all the controls via code!

Little example required, please.

You have to set CFormView class as base class of CYourApplicationView class on step 6 when you create new MDI application with AppWizard help.

I don't know you.
I'm using Borland C 3.1. NOT OWL or VISUAL PROGRAMMING.
