Dialog-based vs. SDI: VC++
Posted on 2001-06-25
I am trying to figure out the advantages and disadvantages to Dialog-based and SDI frameworks of Visual C++ 6.
I am just beginning to use VC++ and it certainly isn't as polished as VB. Under VB I always used regular forms to create whatever I needed. There was no need to use SDI or MDI. I've messed around in VC++ and have been able to place down toolbar controls, and status bar controls onto my Dialog based form but for menus, I've been unable to get accelerator keys to work under it. How do I get accelerator keys to function under Dialog based mode in VC++?
What are all the limitations to using the Dialog based frameworks?
