mfc dialogs in fullscreen exclusive apps

Hello NG,

I would like to display dialogs such as CDialog and CMenu in
fullscreen exclusive mode.

I noticed that CMenu always display under openGL drivers (my app is a
3D Renderer window) but seldomly under DirectX 8.

Also, even by calling SetForegroundWi ndow or SetFocus, I don't manage
to display a CDialog in foreground of my FS app.

I also noticed that MS debug/warning (debug assert failed or debug
heap..., a CDialog window) messages can come in foreground of the app,
so this should be possible to display CDialog in foreground, but I
didn't manage to find how.

Thanks in advance

Regards

Ask the folks in a Windows newsgroup since the _standard_
C++ language has no facilities for Windows, Dialogs or Menus.
Read the FAQ and Welcome.txt below.

Hi, I'm attempting to get a Swing application to go into Exclusive Fullscreen mode and am curious if there's something that I need to do prior to attempting to grab the fullscreen window. The code in question follows: <code> this.setUndecorated(true); GraphicsDevice gd = this.getGraphicsConfiguration().getDevice(); if(gd.isFullScreenSupported()) {

Hi, I am pretty poor at JavaScript so if this is a stupid question I apologise in advance. I am wanting to make the index.html page of a site open the browser up in Full screen mode. I understand I can do this when the viewer clicks a link to the page but I want it to happen when the viewer comes to the site by either typing the address in or a link from another source.

Hi there, First off, let me say that I know that launching to full screen is a bad idea. I would never do it given the choice, but I must follow orders from my boss, the boss that desparately wants a desktop application made out of Internet technologies. We're writing an application that has JavaScript enabled as a client machine requirement. We need to support Windows with IE 5+ and Netscape 7+ plus Mac with IE 5+ and Netscape 6.2+.

Hi, I really need your help here, I looked all over and couldn't find an answer to my problem: I developed a flash-based site in which I have a gallery of pictures and when the user presses a magnifier the picture opens in a new pop-up window. Now, I want this window to be in fullscreen mode. Since I am doing it from the Flash my code might seem a bit strange: function BigImage() {

Hmm... reusing VB.NET Form dialogs in other VB.NET projects seems very straight forward. However, I'm now trying to reuse these dialogs within an existing C-based app. The VB.NET project has already been configured for registration for COM interop, so next question is how do I get retrieve/invoke the dialog's interfaces/properties?

A97. Split database. Frontend DB1.MDB. Backend DB1BE.MDB. Tables are linked between DB1 and DB2. From my testing, if I open DB1 exclusively using /excl the backend DB1BE is not opened exclusively. If I open DB1 but have no tables open and then open up DB1BE exclusively, DB1BE will open exclusive. But if I then attempt to open a linked table in the frontend DB1 I'm informed I can't use the table because the file is in use.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
