Hello.

I have a main dialog (named fhgdlg). When the user clicks on a button of this main dialog, then a new dialog appears (named DlgNewSC). In this new dialog the user can type some information which would be used to update some variables defined in the first dialog, but when I try to relate both dialogs I always get "undeclared identifier", although I have included the include lines in both dialog codes:

#include "DlgNewSC.h"
#include "fhgDlg.h"

So, wheres the problem??

Hi,

Say U have Dlg1 and Dlg2. Dlg2 will be pop up on click of some button on Dlg1.
And Dlg2 has a string m_name. Now In Dlg1 .cpp u include the header for Dlg2 and do like this

Dlg2 dlg;
if(Dlg2.DoModal() == IDOK)
{
  Dlg2.m_name will give u the updated   string.
}

Hope this helps.

Yes that´s almost right:
It should be

 if(dlg.DoModal()==IDOK)
....
 and then use dlg.m_name

Anyway, thanks for your answer. Enjoy the points.

Yes. You have to include both the files.

It is not clear from you post where are you getting the error and what are you doing. To get a pointer to the first dialog, you need to do this:

fhgdlg* pDlgMain= (fhgdlg*)GetParent();

More details would certainly be useful.
