CScrollView in Modal Dialog Box

I have a static dialogbox that contains a dynamically allocated CScrollView class. After calling DoModal the dialog box and View appear fine but when I click inside the view, it crashes. I traced it down to CView::OnMouseActivate
It fails on the following line:
// eat it if this will cause activation
            ASSERT(pParentFrame == pDesktopWnd || pDesktopWnd->IsChild(pParentFrame));

Any suggestion as to how to overcome this problem. Thanks.

You need to do some trickery to make a CView fit in a dialog.

CViews are made to only work within a CFrameWnd-derived class, not a CDialog. Also they require a document (hope you created one of those).

MSJ (jan 2000, C++ Q&A) is about embedding a view in a dialog (in particular a CHtmlView).  That may give you the info you need on how to tweak a CView-derived class so it will work inside a CDialog.

see http://www.microsoft.com/msj/0100/c++/c++0100.asp
