How to make a window modal to CTD

Hi,
i want to make a notification window, that stays in front of CTD and not
behind,
when i select something in the outline. I tried a little bit with the CDK
sample notify.app
to manage it. (when i call a function like SalBringWindowToTop, the focus is
in the window and not in the outline anymore)
How to achieve this ???

Thanks
Thomas L.

Hi,

Add $MainWindow as the second parameter of the notify tool and
then on the SAM_AppStartup use something like this:

Call SalCreateWindow( frmNotify,
lNumberToWindowHandle( SalStrToNumber( strArgArray[2] ) ),
Outline.m_hOutline )

Also you can set a dialogue property as 'Modeless' and use
SalCreateWindow( dlgNotify, hWndForm) and it will stay in front of it's
parent (hWndForm).

Nope, this i tried and it failed, because the parent must be CTD, that a
dialog can stay in front of,
but hWndForm does not have the handle of CTD.I also tried to find CTD by its
title, but if you open the same apps twice
i get a problem.

You can also use

hWndCTD = SalOutlineUIFrameOfOutline ( hOutline )
