I'm not sure that I understand exactly what you want, but maybe something like this:

(CADlg*)GetParent()->m_string = "New value";

I'not sure either, but did I get it: You have a dlg in dlg?

class CADlg
{

  protected:

  CBDlg m_dlgB; // ??
}

Hello,

2 Options:

You can change the variable from class A when dialog B is called with success :

Class CADlg
{
protected:
  long Var;
public:
  long GetVar() { return Var; }
  void SetVar(long V) { Var = V;}
}

CADlg::DoFunctionIdontKnow()
{
  CBDlg Dlg;
  if (Dlg.DoModal() == IDOK)
  {
     Var = Dlg.<your_variable>
  }

}


Second option : change the variables of A realtime while using dialog B
Suppose you want to do it in function "MyFunction"

CBDlg::MyFunction
{
  long NewValue = (3 * 6) + 9;
  (CADlg*)GetParent()->SetVar(NewValue);
  // This makes sure the value of the protected    
  // variable 'Var' is set, whatever happens in
  // dialog B
}

This last option isn't a proper way to program in c++, it has something of the VB way of life...

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Hi nvlinh,

as you can see from previous comments there may be many possibilities
to do this which depend on the kind of problem you have. So, could you
please describe your problem a bit more detailed, at lease we need to
know how the two dialogs are related together (i.e. CBDlg is modal and
displayed from within a function of CADlg, so CADlg is the parent dialog
of CBDlg ... or CBDlg is displayed after CADlg is closed with OK).
Best would be you explain what you want your program to do in this context
in details ... even you should post some relevant code how you use the
dialogs now.

There are many ways to do it.
One way is could be this(It depends on your requirements):

When you construct you BDlg object in ADlg you can pass "this" pointer to its constructor.

CBDlgj dlg(this);
dlg.DoModal();


In the header of BDlg include ADlg.h:
#include "ADlg.h"

create a member vareiable of Adlg type:
CADlg* m_pAldg;

In the constructor of your BDlg set your BDlg member variable to pParent:
CBDlg::CBDlg(CWnd* pParent /*=NULL*/)
:CDialog(CBDlg::IDD, pParent)
{
  /.../
  m_pAdlg = (CADlg*)pParent;
}

Now in your CBdlg class you can use:
m_pAdlg->m_SomeVariable = somevalue.
m_pAdlg->SomeFunction();

This is just one way(simple), thera are other ways to.
If you have any problems, I can send you sample app
with two dlgs.

hi Thomas_Dzieran,

Though you post is excellent, there is no way that it should be considered a finale "Answer"  The question is too ambiguous to be answered.  Please, post comments like everybody else.  Thanks!
