Undocking Dialogs outside of parent window?
Posted on 2001-09-13
I want to begin a project and have an idea in mind, though don't know how to go about starting it.
My project is going to have many dialog/form views, to one document. So will probably go with a SDI CFormView based project, or Dialog based.
I'd like to have a vertical splitter, with one pane being used for the dialogs. The other side will be used to go to all the other dialogs (tree view or list view, or tabs, etc).
However, if my user wants to see more than one dialog at a time, I want to be able to "pop out" a dialog from the parent frame, and have it sort of float anywhere on the desktop. In this way, they can either see one dialog contained within one app. frame, or they can have many dialogs placed around the desktop for easy viewing.
Any ideas on where to start, or to search further?
