passing parameters between MDI windows
Posted on 1998-10-10
I have an MDI application. One of the capabilities is to create MULTIPLE windows of type SQL_Form. Within SQL_Form, the user may drill down to show additional information, spawning off a SQL_DETAILS window, also MDI.
I need to pass information between the SQL_FORM window and ONLY the SQL_DETAIL window that it owns. This information is only transferred once when I create the SQL_DETAIL window.
It's NOT a back and forth communications. It basically sets up some environmental type information. (text strings that go into edit boxes, etc..)
I started off with global variables, but realized I really don't want to do that way.
So in summary, how does one MDI child window pass information to an MDI child window that is just created, or even pass the information during the create process?
