Topic: Displaying Modal & Modeless at same time
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 71450

I currently have a floating (modeless) dialog box showing at all times (like a toolbar), I would like a Modal dialog box to pop up at one point (temporarily disabling the floating box). I'm using this code for the modal box

ADMDialogRef myDlg = sADMDialog->Create(sADMPluginRef, "MyModal", IDD_SECURITYDLG,
kADMModalDialogStyle, SettingsOnInit, NULL, NULL);

ASInt32 exitButton = sADMDialog->DisplayAsModal(myDlg);

And then using:

sADMDialog->EndModal(myDlg, exitButton, true);

to exit the box. PROBLEM: The box is not modal (I've tried using Modal instead of create but my floating dialog box is still accessible) PLUS my box cannot be closed (I can't use ReleaseADM because that will close my floating box too, no?)
