I have been defeated... I had the main window of my program (win32 API) be a dialog, and loaded all the common controls on it from a resource file definition. Then I found out - hey, these dialog boxes can't be nested! Yes! Crap. So now, I have to convert the dialog to a window that looks just like the original dialog box. Is there any way to do this quickly? As in, can I just change a few things in the resource file def to make it work for the window? If not, how would I put the controls (there are quite a few) onto the window? If this doesn't make sense, please tell me.
