I need a window that allows me to click on it, but that doesn't want the focus.
I have some dialogs that start / stop a network connection. Therefore I want to have another window that monitors the status of the network.
The monitor status dialog should be always visible beside the modal dialogs.
As a common way to display status text, I use a CListCtrl.
Problem: The modal dialogs doesn't allow me to click on the CListCtrl of the Status window - which would be nice to allow the user to scroll the CListCtrl.
In my case, there are more than one modal dialogs following after one another.
Therefore I don't want a parent window-child window relation between the modal dialogs and the status monitor window.
class CMyMonitor : public CWnd
void Init(CRect& pos);
void AddString(CString s);
void CMyMonitor::Init(CRect& pos)
m_data.Create(WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE | WS_BORDER | LVS_LIST | LVS_NOCOLUMNHEADER, pos, AfxGetMainWnd(), 1);
void CMyMonitor::AddString(CString s)
