    Popping up the video format/source dialogs non-modally


    My problem is the following: if I call the "video source" or "video format" dialogs using capDlgVideoSource/ capDlgVideoFormat they are modal windows, therefore I can't use the caller app until they are closed. This causes many problems. I saw apps which pop up these dialogs non-modally, but unfortunately could not figure out how they do this.
    Any idea would be highly appreciated.

    Instead of using capDlgVideoSource(), you could always design your own form that looks like the Dialog box that Windows opens up. However, since this is your form, you could always create it as non-modal.
