Modal Dialog with Modeless 'Floating' Child Forms
Posted on 1998-11-24
I have to create a modal application form. I would like this modal form to have 'floating' toolpads, each having titlebars that are the same color as the active modal main application form. I know how to reparent these forms so that they stay on top of main app, and are minimized/destroyed when the main app is minimized destroyed.
How do I allow input to be received from these modeless toolpads without changing the modal nature of the main application window (this is important as this main applcation is part of an Active X DLL, which has to halt execution of any client applications that call it).
Finally, how do I set the grey titlebar colors of the modeless forms to match that of the modal main app form?
I think the answers to these questions relate to windows API calls, which I know very little about. Code examples are greatly appreciated.
Thanks very much.
