CFormView inside a Dialog.

Tools : MS Visual C++ 5.0

I am developing a (NT) dialog based application and I would like to include a CFormView inside a dialog. The reasons for this are that I would like to take advantage of the scrolling capabilities of the FormView and I would also like to dynamically create controls (text boxes, combo boxes, etc..) inside the FormView. Basically the idea is to have a parent dialog and inside this dialog have a CFormView just as if it was regular control.
I would appreciate if somebody who has done something similar to this would help me. I would appreciate if some sample code was included in the response since I don't have much experience with MFC and been able to see some code would really help me.
My e-mail address is  cdiaz@cadrc.calpoly.edu

Why not create a Single Document Application with FormView. It will satisfy what you want to do.

If you want to make a project in this way, just choose C*View as CFormView in Baseclass combobox at step 6.

CFormView makes use of the document-view architecture. It seems difficult to put it into your dialog-based application. What about putting the following ActiveX control into your dialog?

This is not exactly what I was looking for. I found  out that what works better in my case is to insert a dialog inside my paret dialog.  That way I can scroll and dinamically add controls to the child dialog. I checked out the ActiveX control that you mention in your answer and it didn't work for my case. But thanks for your help.
