hi

  I want to show a series of dialog boxes. I use ShowWindow, but i notice flickering and slow refreshing ( coz i'm able to see background applications when the refreshing occurs )

eg from Dialog Box 1 to Dialog Box 2

   ShowWindow(SW_HIDE);
   Dlg2.DoModal();
   ShowWindow(SW_SHOW);

   Any suggestions the above code i used or other methods greatly appreciated. TIA!

U can increase speed by following way:

Add to class for Dlg2:

class CClassName : public CDialog {
  //add class member
  CDialog *m_pParentDlg;  
  //...
  //add metdod
  void SetParentDlg(CDialog *pParentDlg);
}

//...

//Add string to constructor
void CClassName::CClassName() {
  //...
  //Initialize m_pParentDlg
  m_pParentDlg = NULL;
}

void CClassName::SetParentDlg(CDialog *pParentDlg) {
  m_pParentDlg = pParentDlg;
}

void CClassName::OnShowWindow(BOOL bShow, UINT nStatus) {
      CDialog::OnShowWindow(bShow, nStatus);
      
  if ((bShow == TRUE) && (m_pParentDlg != NULL))
    m_pParentDlg ->ShowWindow(SW_HIDE);
}

//Add this for OnClose, OnOk, etc.
void CClassName::OnClose() {
  //...
  if (m_pParentDlg != NULL)
    m_pParentDlg ->ShowWindow(SW_SHOW);
}


Hope this helps,
