How to make an exe file into a child of another window
Posted on 2001-08-23
I have an app that consists of numerous small exe files - necessary as the updates download over CDPD devices which are very slow. We would like to have to whole app execute within a frame, with a vertical menu, similar to outlook.
We have solved almost everything except how to load the exe files as children of a fram contained on what would become the MDI parent.
Does anyone know of a way to do this, so the newly loaded exe file operates just as if it were a child, or owned window, of the frame.
We have some work-arounds, but they do not provide for minimization, maximixing, etc. We would prefer a "true" child solution.
