I am using VC++ 6 and MFC. I programmed a dialog box as modal I understood or misunderstood that once opened the user would have to supply the information before they continue using other applications.
I believe if the dialog is opened from another application this is true. I am opening it as a stand alone application. I have been trying to research System Modal Dialogs but can't find any information on them.
Some how windows accomplishes this during login and log off dialogs.
If I could open the dialog box and grap control of the mouse I could accomplish the same thing.
Only problem I don't have a clue how to do it except tring to intercept the mouse messages.
Sorry about the length.
