Hi!

According to documentation, when creating a form you can declare a owner. I want this because I want my form to behave like a "Search and Replace" dialog, which never minimizes. In general
"Owned forms are also never displayed behind their owner form. You can use owned forms for windows such as find and replace windows, which should not disappear when the owner form is selected. "

So the question is, if I am running kixforms from within an application (such as MS-Word, which I don't know its form name) How can I tell my form to behave like a Search and Replace windows?

Thanks in advance.

Hey and welcome.

afaik kixforms.classic forms cannot be owned by other apps than kixforms.classic forms. I cannot really speak for kixforms.net but as for today I should think it is the same in green.

Shawn? Dale? Anyone else?

Hi!

What you said it does make sense, I was hoping that you guys know some trick to make it work. I was pretty close to create a nice modeless window for my application, unfortunately when the application is minimized the dialog is not.

In any case, thanks for your help.

In case MS-Word wasn't just a sample but the app you'd like to build on, I'd recommend you to go with Visual Basic from within the MS Office Application where you can build forms and stuff ... crude but modal Wink
