Yep, I mean process.
Did I mention that I've been unable to find anything about
designing one of these interfaces?
Can you point me to a resource?
From the perspective I have now, I can see that their may
be a simpler method for doing what I want.
I did want each child's icon to appear in the task bar,
and creating processes does accomplish that. How would you
put icons in the task bar?
On the bright side, I have learned a great deal about
creating processes, and communicating with them using page
backed memory mapping.
Things are working pretty well, so while I'm interested
in the recommend method of building this interface, I'd
like to move forward with what I have.
I'd like to get what I have now working, and then I'll
take another look at the decisions that have brought the
project to this point.
Since I've posted, I've tried having the child process
open a child dialog with the parent's client window as the
parent of the dialog. Things seem to just freeze. I've
tried both modal and modeless child dialogs.
If there is no way forward I'll retrench, but this is
where the project is now, and I'd like to close the deal
I do appreciate your input.
