How to lauch a UI thread that calls CDialog::DoModal() inside MFC?

yossikally asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-20
Unaware of the MFC intricacies I called
m_hThread      = (HANDLE)_beginthread(ThreadFunction, 0, this);

and in "ThreadFunction":
  CDlgCheckDriver dlg;

 Now dlg behaves just fine until I insert on it an Activex (anything e.g. Calendar).
Then It crashes trying to create that component,    in AfxOleInit, because AfxGetThread() returned NULL.
