MDI vs. modeless and floating windows
I've finally started coding again. I need a floating window so that my users can see a list of triangles, and the display of such triangles. I've come up with two ways to do this. I've thought about switching over from an SDI to an MDI. I've also thought about using modeless dialogs instead of MDI.
Your suppose to be able to interact with your application and the modeless dialog box at the same time, right?
I found documentation for visual foxpro that talks about creating and MDI app. with child windows that will float outside of the parent window. How can one do this in C# using MDI?
My last question is what are the pros and cons of using MDI floating windows vs. modeless dialogs?
I also noticed that there are two overloads for ShowDialog(). Why would you want to use one or the other?
