Hi Everyone, Is it possible to create a dotNet MDI app (C#) and use pinvoke to create win32 client forms? This would mean using the CreateWindowEx function and possibly sending over the dotNet parent Handle. If you can do this, what steps should I take and watch out for? For example, do I need to send over the HINSTANCE of the app and/or do I need to set the MdiParent to the win32 child. Lots of questions here. Any help would be totally awesome! Cheers guys, DrD.
