nope, what happening is i have a dialog box, in my case its very tedious, they have done it long back and don't want to change!

i create my parent dialog box and i haven't done the do modal for that!
Before doing DoModal we set the mainframe wnd of the application to the dialog created. before domodal i check connections with some other things and if it fails i put a message box in my own format. Message box is a another dialog we created, so i am passing null as parent of the message box dialog which eventually becomes mainframe window which is not yet created.

so when the message dialog box displays, if i try to move the mouse or any operation it throws as exception and after debugging i found it goes to parent class pretranslate function but parent class(mainframe window) is NULL.

so i want to handle the messages in poped up dialog box only. how do i do that?

i hope above things made sense to u
