 Accessing a parent dialog's controls from a child modeless dialog

Hi Akin,

When you create you CSubDlg object do you pass the CMainDlg as the parent?
This can be accomplished like this:

void CMainDlg::OnMyHandler( void )
    // Create modeless dialogs from the heap.
    CSubDlg* dlg= new CSubDlg( this );
    // Display the dialog, only needed if the WS_VISIBLE style isn't set.
    dlg->ShowWindow( SW_NORMAL );


then in the CSubDlg:

void CSubDlg::OnOK( void )
    // Depending on what functions you want to call, you may have to
    // CWnd type functions can be called without typecasting.
    (GetParent()->GetDlgItem( IDC_EDIT ))->EnableWindow( true );
    if ( m_bModeless )
        EndDialog( IDOK );
