modeless dialog form hanging

Hi there,

I'm having a problem with a modeless form in my app.

I have a main form in my app and a socket that waits on data from a server
(I use BeginReceive/EndReceive for that) and when I receive certain data
from the server I want to create a new modeless form to show some of that
data. But after receiving the data from the socket the modeless dialog does
not appear (it seems to be receiving no windows message to update itself,
etc.). If I remove the code for the socket and directly create the modeless
dialog it works fine. Is there something I should be looking at wrt to the
socket and threading/messages in order to get a 2nd dialog form working
properly in modeless mode?

I'm using C++ and the .net framework.

Thanks,
Andrew

One quick note. Everything works fine with the socket when I just have my
one main form running.

I have a windows app whose main dialog contains a button that launches a form. I've tried using Form.Show() to have it launch as a modeless form, but it behaves as if it's modal (i.e. parent form can't receive focus)... Can someone tell me what I need to do to make the child form modeless..??? I want to be able to alternate focus between both dialogs... thanks,

I'm currently writing a small program that churns on a repetitive task while displaying a progress & cancel modeless dialog. I've been having problems due to threadlocking, and I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice. Basically when I create the modeless dialog, I'm assuming that C# under the covers will be implicitly creating a new thread for the modeless dialog's message pump. Thus I protect the state determiners with a...

I get a Null Reference Exception if I close a modeless form (that is, a form displayed using Show()) when a selection is made from a ComboxBox. If the form is modal (displayed using ShowDialog()) or the selection is made from, say, a ListBox, no exception is thrown. I have included a simple example below. The error message refers to Unsafe Native Methods, but the code is 100% managed. What is going on ? I am using C#.NET 2003, Standard...

Hello Can a modeless form be used as the "owner" of a modal form? Here's the situation, from my MainForm, I have created a modeless form using "Show" - and showed a modal form using "ShowDialog". For some reason, if I do any user action on my modal form, it falls behind the MainForm. Any clues?

Is there a trick so I can use a modeless dialog box in a master/content webform? I can display the modeless dialog, but it vanishes when a new content page is loaded. I need it to stay visible while the content pages are navigated.; I was able to do this using framesets by putting the javascript which displays the dialog in the frameset but this doesn't work with a master page, since it is reloaded when the content page is changed.
