To change it to modeless, replace DoModal() with Create(). That's it. (But
be careful of your scoping!)
(Actually, not quite it... You need to change your contructor. Remove the
one in there now, and create one that takes no parameters. The default
contructor is protected. Since I have some modeless dialog objects that may
exist when the dialog doesn't, I added a flag that keeps the state that gets
set in the overridden Create and OnDestroy members. Though I could have
called IsWindow also. I also added a Create member that takes only the parent
window. My Create then calls CDialog::Create(MyDialog::IDD, pParent).)
