calling DoModal() from the constructor


In our application we've created some temporary
dialog boxes. Rather than the usual method of
1) calling the constructor for the dialog,
2) doing other initialization
3) calling DoModal()
4) calling some functions on the dialog object to
get our results

We're passing in some pointers to the constructor for
both setup, and retrieving the results. Then we call
DoModal() from inside the constructor, and its done
in one flew swoop. My question is:

Will this style come back to haunt us? Are there
any problems (other than a general lack of flexiblity)
that we're going to run into doing things this way?

Thanks for any help.

Brent
