Hi, experts

I have CHTMLView as my main application.
When menu item is clicked I would like to bring up my modal/modeless dialog
containing CListView/CListCtrl populated with items.
I need your suggestions for a proper way to do this before i get started.

Thank you

I am sure you know how to create a dialogue; just create it on the handler (that will probably be in the view class) for the menu item that is clicked in.

>> containing CListView/CListCtrl populated with items.

You will need to add all the items to CListView/CListCtrl in OnInitDialog() within the dialogue class; this is the standard place to do such things.  Code specific to that depends on your requirements, but this is definitely the place to do it.

HTH !

Open Classwizard and create a function for the message WM_INITDIALOG ... that will give you InitDialog

If you are using MSVC++, you can open the class via class wizard, and then choose to add handler for the WM_INITDIALOG.  This will add this handler for you.

Be sure to add your code in the appropriate place (i.e. where it says TODO) !

Modal or modeless? Modal is simple. Use modeless only if you need to keep view active at the time when dialog is shown. To show modal dialog:

void CMyView::OnMenuItem()
{
    CMyDialog dlg(this);
 
    // Pass here required information for dialog initializing it's members.
    // For example, CMyDialog may contain some list (not list control, just list) which is filled here.
    // Use this information in OnInitDialog to show it in dialog controls.

    dlg.DoModal();
}

Everything you suggested worked just fine,experts.
Only one thing left unclear for me:

In my OnInitDialog()
I am trying to use the following code to populate my CListView inside my dialog:

      GetListCtrl().SetExtendedStyle(LVS_EX_FULLROWSELECT);

      GetListCtrl().InsertColumn(0, "Address", LVCFMT_LEFT, 100, 0);
      GetListCtrl().InsertColumn(1, "City", LVCFMT_LEFT, 100, 1);
      GetListCtrl().InsertColumn(2, "State", LVCFMT_LEFT, 100, 2);

But can not get to GetListCtrl() of CListView
After this one is solved I have to plit the points, I guess

Thank you very much for your participation

GetListCtrl is function of CListView. In dialog you need to add member variable of CListCtrl type (open Class Wizard, select this dialog in combo box, select Member Variables tag). Add CListCtrl variable for list control (for example, m_list_ctrl). Code should be:

m_list_ctrl.SetExtendedStyle(LVS_EX_FULLROWSELECT);
