How to make Dialog based app to Modeless

I want to make the AppWizard created dialog based application into modeless dialog based application. I've created the dialog using create function it is creating the dialog and displaying the dialog but it is not been persisted but it is closing the application immediately. How to the retain the application from closing?

It's not working
I tried with returning TRUE. The application is being terminated due to this.

hmm have you set the main window to be that of your modeless dialog (see pseudo code)

CYourApp::InitInstance()
{
....
// create modeless dialog
CModeless *pWnd=new CModeless;
pWnd->Create(...);
m_pMainWnd = pWnd;

return TRUE;
}
