Multiple Modeless Dialog Boxes...

This is a fairly easy question.  With one modeless dialog box, my loop in winmain looks like:

while (GetMessage (&msg, NULL, 0, 0))
     {
          if (hDlgModeless == 0 || !IsDialogMessage(hDlgModeless, &msg))
          {              
               TranslateMessage(&msg);
               DispatchMessage(&msg);
          }
               
     }

If I were to have 2 modeless dialog boxes in my program (say, hDlgModelessA and hDlgModelessB)

Could I do something like:

while (GetMessage (&msg, NULL, 0, 0))
     {
          if ( (hDlgModelessA == 0 || !IsDialogMessage(hDlgModelessA, &msg)) && (hDlgModelessB == 0 || !IsDialogMessage(hDlgModelessB, &msg) )
          {              
               TranslateMessage(&msg);
               DispatchMessage(&msg);
          }
               
     }

Or is the process different when dealing with multiple modeless dialog boxes?

navigator,
The process is no different. However, you may want to try something like:

HWND hModelessDlgs = {hDlgModelessA, hDlgModelessB};

#define dim(X) sizeof((X)) / sizeof((X)[0])

while (GetMessage(&msg, NULL, 0, 0))
{
    bool processMsg = true;
    for (int i = 0; processMsg && i < dim(hModelessDlgs); i++)
    {
        if (hModelessDlgs[i] == NULL || !IsDialogMessage(hModelessDlgs[i], &msg))
            processMsg = false;
    }
    if (processMsg)
    {
        TranslateMessage(&msg);
        DispatchMessage(&msg);
    }
}

navigator,

I need to make one small change:

if (hModelessDlgs[i] == NULL || !IsDialogMessage...

SHOULD BE:

if (hModelessDlgs[i] && IsDialogMessage(hModelessDlgs[i], &msg))

I never would have thought of a solution like that.  It definitly makes it easier to deal with it, especially if you have many modeless dialog boxes...
