I have a test program using a main "dialog form" and a second sub-form, accessbile via a button "OnSubForm"

I'm getting these errors on successive lines during compile.
error C2143: syntax error : missing ';' before '^'
error C2227: left of '->ShowDialog' must point to class/struct/union

#include "stdafx.h"
#include "AppParent.h"
#include "AppParentDlg.h"
#include "CustomUI.h"
void CBEParentDlg::OnSubform()
{
      // TODO: Add your control notification handler code here

      CCustomUI^ cf = gcnew CCustomUI();
      cf->ShowDialog();
}

I suspect you want something like the following
CCustomUI* cf = new CCustomUI();
cf->Create(PUT YOUR PARAMETERS HERE);
cf->ShowWindow(SW_SHOW);

OR

CCustomUI cf;
cf.DoModal();

Appears to be a .net application. You can download Visual C++.net 2008 to test it.

Hi

I normally program in C# these days, but for this project I intend to use VC++ 6.0, as related programs are compiled in 6.0 not .NET

Will test Andy's solution tonight.

Thanks

Hi Andy,

Yeap, your right.

For completeness - here is the working code.

void CBEParentDlg::OnSubform()
{
      // TODO: Add your control notification handler code here

            CCustomUI* cf = new CCustomUI();
            cf->Create(IDD_CUSTOMUI_DIALOG);
            cf->ShowWindow(SW_SHOW);
}

Thanks
