MDI form doesn't recognize Child forms from DLL
Posted on 1998-10-19
Using the technique(s) presented in my earlier question about forms in DLLs, I am indeed able to make the form come up, as an MDIChild, on my main form. HOWEVER, the main form does NOT recognize the child form AS A CHILD!! It neither lists the form in the Window menu item, nor does it increment the MDIChildCount variable. Since the form comes up okay, this doesn't make sense to me.
I need a way to be able to tell >if< an instance of a particular child form is already up. If I can't access a handle for it, and the program doesn't recognize that it's there, what can I do?!?!
Any & all guidance much appreciated!
