What is the difference between Modal and Modeless Dialog?

Posted by bionicoder on April 3, 2009

The difference between MFC modal and model less dialog is:

A modal dialog box doesn’t allow the user to access the parent window while the dialog is open – it must be dealt with and closed before continuing. A modeless dialog can be open in the background.

Example for Model Dialog is Save, Save As Dialog in MS – Word. while it is opening you can’t do any thing in the application until you close that window. Example for Modeless Dialog is Find,Replace dialogs. You can use Find Dialog, same time you can also work in that word application.
