Hi Experts,

I have an include directory where I like to put all my shared code called, "inc".  In that folder I have a CWnd derived calendar that opens up a CDialog derived class that I created with ClassWizard. The CDialog is my CMyEvent dialog.  I also want to put this CMyEvent dialog into the inc folder but I can't because it's tied to the app's resources...  In the end, I am stuck pulling my calendar control out of the inc folder and into the app's directory since it opens up the app's specific CMyEvent dialog....

So my question is - is there a way to keep ClassWizard-generated dialogs generic (not program specific) - so that I can include them easily in other projects?  I had tried to do the calendar in its own dll before... tried very hard to get that working but gave up after 2 weeks of solid trying everything I could think of...  I may try to find where I went wrong because it's becoming more important to clean up my code before adding more....

Thank you very much.
Mike

you can have backup of your .rc files....  your resource file includes dialogs as well other dialogs.. you can easily import them into another workspace using resource copy... you can even open your resource .rc file using visual studio and copy dialogs across your workspace using File->Open->Open As Resource type select .rc file and you can view resource tree to import so that you can copy easily your dialogs.

Create an extension dll.  That can export classes and it will be like any other project for you to work wth in the IDE.  Then each project that you need the calender in you can just add the extension dll to the solution and use instruct the compiler that the project 'depends' on the extension dll.
