Remarks

 

This function can be used in case an MDI client dialog has been created without the appropriate extended styles needed for MDI client windows.

This function is not necessary if MDI child window has already been created with the following EX styles:

 

%WS_EX_MDICHILD

Creates a multiple-document interface (MDI) child window.

 

%WS_EX_CONTROLPARENT

The window itself contains child windows that should take part in dialog box navigation. If this style is specified, the dialog manager recurses into children of this window when performing navigation operations such as handling the TAB key, an arrow key, or a keyboard mnemonic.
