How do I embedd a dialog into a docking pane.

I tried to use a method that worked with CMDIChildFrame well, but I cannot even create the CDalog derived class ( Create() fails ) with a docking pane as parent.

Here is what I do in OnDockingPaneNotify:

CMiniFrameWnd* pParent = reinterpret_cast<CMiniFrameWnd*>(pPane);

pMD = new MyDialog( pParent );

Create fails In the constructor of MyDialog.

______________________________________________________________

Aha, it works, if I use the Mainframe as parent.

 pMD = new MyDialog( this );

This arises a new problem, the dialog buttons vanish once clicked and don't reappear until the pane is resized.

_______________________________________________________________

Problem solved:

Remove the cancel and ok buttons. These have some default functinality which cause this behaviour.

Another note: Handle the event messages in the dialog, they don't reach the main frame.

________________________________________________________________

A final remark, I spent two days on the initial problem, so it's not like I wasn't thinking for myself

How do I handle messages sent/received from/to child controls (such as Picture, edit, etc) placed in a dialog which is embedded in a docking pane? Please help.

An example of what I am looking at is dynamically resizing a static rectangle using GetWindowRect(...), then, recalulating the rect, and resizing it using SetWindowPos(...).

Your valuable time is much appreciated.

Thanks
Indrajit
