I've created a dialog resource and let the class wizard create a shell class for me. i've added some callbacks and accessor functions to it and new when I call DoMModal() the dialog doesnt show up on the screen, any ideas why? I am creating the dialog in my OnNewDocument() call back.

Check your OnInitDialog func.

I think you'll need to call the CDialog::OnInitDialog, the first thing in the function.


BOOL CMUDDialog::OnInitDialog()
{
// this is were i think you are missing
CDialog::OnInitDialog();
//Initialize list control
return TRUE;
}

Luck,
Waseem.

Try what Waseem suggested. In case you are calling CDialog::OnInitDialog(), post the OnInitDialog() and constructor(if there is something) code. It would help us analyze the problem better.

Is your dialog marked as 'Visible' in the resource editor?

[This sounds pretty dumb, but it's happened to the best of us!]

I'm agreee with 'waseemanis'

The call to base class CDialog::OnInitDialog()  is missing !!
So it didn't do anything.

The call to CDialog::OnInitDialog() didnt help, actually I couldnt even get the dialog to appear before I overode the method, I only added it in case I had to.
Also the dialog is marked as visible.

I loaded the .rc file in to a text editor and found that the dialog didnt have the visible attribute on it and was actually set as disabled. I reloaded the .rc file and it magically decided to tell me that it was disabled and I changed the proper styles.
