  • Problems with the TAB-Key

    But only from the Tree to the Buttons and back or in the other case around the controls in the "inlay-dialog".

    If the Focus leave the tree i can set him to the "inlay-dialog". But i can set the focus back on the buttons, if the focus is around the controlls inside. (Specially if some controlls are disabled)

    Anybody have a solution?

    thx Thomas

  • A very GOOD job!

  • Dialog Window styles are important

    Nice code! (both useful and well done.)

    I converted an option dialog I had, with multiple property pages. However, I was confused by window behavior until I tuned in on dialog style options in the VS dialog editor.

    Each child dialog must have a window style of 'child.' If it's popup (and most of mine were) then the window will be created, but not embedded in the parent dialog.

    For some reason, many of my dialogs were also initially disabled (dialog style.) They were created, but unusable.

    The new dialogs obviously must be based on CPropertyPage.

    I haven't worked on help identifiers, but that's an important problem I'll have to solve. We have separate help IDs for each dialog box in the product.

    It took me a very short time to get mine converted, although the window style subtleties took me longer than it should have. I did it all (converted working propertysheet/page dialog to this) in about 3 hours, however, which isn't bad.

  • Really cool... but...

    Is there a way to dynmically adjust the size of your dialog to fit
    the largest "tree dialog" ??

    I tested this technique, and it works. Good job by the Petr Stejskal.

    There is a point, which bother me two days. Don't forget to specify the Control property for Property Page Template. Otherwise all controls on it will be disabled.
