Is there a way to create a new process but to force it to be a child window of the calling process? I am trying to create a window that will allow programs(WORD,NOTEPAD, EXCEL,etc...)to run in and be confined to my windows' client area. If someone knows where I can get some info,hints,tuts... I would appreciate it very much.
That's one of the features of OLE automation. This feature allows you to activate any unknown OLE-aware application within your own window.
but if the wanted alpplication is NOT an OLE server...:( you can not do it...and notepad is not...but word and excel are ;)
