Hi,

U may be using Create to create the modeless dialog box. Override that function to Ur dialog modeless class, and in that function Get the parent of it and disable it!!!. So the modeless dialog becomes modaled. Similarly override the destroying of it(may be in the destructor) enable its parent.

To disable
GetParent()->EnableWindow(FALSE);

and to enable
GetParent()->EnableWindow(TRUE);

Hope that helps.

Amazing... I just answered the same zona's Q in Windows programming topic area.

zona has 8/19 grading record and 7 currently locked questions!

It seems that he likes to ask questions, but he doesn't worry about experts who answer him!
