nested Dialogs

I need a full example to handle nested Dialogs.

The Dialog has a List box control. Depending on the List box selection a child dialog should be displayed.

Gus,
I can knock-up a sample for you, how many types of dialogs would you like.  Is it context-sensitive from the list box or is the same dialog for each one.  Do you want the dialog to be shown on double-click.
Send me an eMail and I will create it for you overnight.

The program is a little bit more complex.

I have a main application which loads several DLL. Each DLL register a Document Template or a Connection Template.

The Dialog is used to setup the Connections.
The Listbox contains the names of the Templates.

When a listbox item is selected and the Create Button is pressed a new Connection is created an a part of the main Dialog should display the Connectionsparameters. (Portnumber and Baudrate for RS232, Device ID for CAN, ...).

If your example shows me how to display one nested dialog, i should be able to do the rest.

Gus, I think I understood but you havn't responded to my eMail.  Here are 2 cpp files that implement an outer dialog with a list-box (CTemplateDlg) and a nested dialog (CConfigurationDlg) when a valid list-box item is selected the outer dialog is shown.
I can send the whole sample by eMail when you send it
