I am desiring to create an MDI where the child windows have characteristics of Dialog windows (ie. control buttons, sliders, etc.). Is this possible without using Dialog windows?? I do not want to use dialogs because I want them to confined within the area of my application window. Anywhere that I can get some information on how to do this would be greatly appreciated.
Thanx.

Providing you are using MFC:

The CFormView class is the base class used for views containing controls. These controls are laid out based on a dialog-template resource. Use CFormView if you want form-based documents in your application. These views support scrolling, as needed, using the CScrollView.

Samples - MFC Sample SNAPVW | MFC Sample VIEWEX

If not, then I am not sure :-)

thresher_shark is right. Use the CFormView to create dialog based views in SDI or MDI applications.
thresh, you should have posted it as an answer.
