I have a new idea for my program. To give a background, it has an MDI where each document represents a connection to a server. I am thinking about making a single window to monitor downloads from the servers so there isn't a window for every download. I plan to do this by using a CListCtrl and drawing a progress bar where the last column of a line is. The OnTimer() of the dialog will cycle through all documents looking for active downloads via a list kept of them in the document and display them in this list. Correct me if I am wrong but, I am thinking that the dialog should be a member of the MainFrame. Because it has to go through all the active documents. Am I correct in assuming this approach? Any suggestions are welcome. Thank you.
