...Links in Outlook 2003 open Save As... dialog box
I'm not sure exactly when this started happening.
Whenever I click a link in Outlook 2003 now, it opens the
Save As... dialog box as well as the Website connected to
the link. It doesn't matter what type of link it is; the
dialog always shows up with the .exe file type selected.
Does it oen the Save As dialog or does it open the Locate Link Browser
dialog? In case of the last direct it to iexplore.exe

"S...How to Move Two Dialogs at Once
One of my work's project specifications is to allow users to move two Dialog

Hi, I've created a dialog called InfoWindow. Previously I had called it like

Could you try to pass some variables to InfoWindow before

I have a VS 6.0 MFC dialog-based application. The main dialog has an edit
box for displaying messages as things happen. A button on the main dialog
starts a modeless dialog. The modeless dialog has a 'DoIt' button which
executes a long process, updating the main dialog edit box. I'm finding that
the main dialog and modeless dialog are unresponsive as long as I'm in the
'OnDoIt' routine. I had thought that a modeless dialog box would essentially
run 'independent' of the main dialog but that doesn't seem to be the case.

If you don't call CDialog::OnOK then the dialog box does not close.

One possibility is that your Frame window is failing to create.

...Handling mouse messages for a ListBox in a dialog created in the editor
I created a dialog in MSVC resource editor and placed a listbox in

(WM_LBUTTONDOWN) to get the cursor position when the button was

because the dialog is created in the resource editor?
Sure you can; I do it all the time. Twice, this morning. Just create your subclass, and
the use the classWizard to create a control member variable. Done. Take a look at my essay
on Avoiding GetDlgItem for more details.

Not sure where you are finding this list.
Do you mean the Recent Documents you see when you click on the Button?
You can clear that by setting your MRU list to 0 under Button>Excel
If you mean the list you see when you go to Button>Open then you will have
to set a new default file path to a folder that is empty.

...Pinning dialog on top of other dialogs
I have an MFC app that is essentially a dialog app controlled by a
process control layer. The control layer is responsible for hiding and
showing the various dialogs.
All of these dialogs are modeless dialogs created when the app starts
(for speed reasons), then hidden, like so:
pFrame->Log(_T("Symbol Bar loading"));
When it's time for a dialog to appear, it is sent a message along with
any new data. The dialog updates itself and calls its parent class to
make it visible.

cannot find them!

Hello, I'm using MSVC++ 8.0 SP1 and I created a dialog based MFC
