I am new to MFC programming and I'm trying to transfer data (for example, which check boxes were checked or which radio button was selected) from a child dialog to the parent formview. The formview needs to know what was selected in the child dialgo box. I want to update a static text control or a editable text control in the formview, once the user has clicked on the "OK" button on the child dialog box. I am using MFC document/view architecture and my application is a SDI. Can someone provide me with some ideas on which is the best way for the parent formview be aware on what was selected in the child dialog?
