Executes MDI child windows.
mdichildID = Start_MDIChild(mdichildgroupID, mdiframeID, createparam, mdichildinstanceID, mdichildtitle, initialappearancemode [, initx, inity, winStruct])
The MDIChild function has the following parameters.
|MdichildgroupID||The child window name.|
|MdiframeID||The frame window name. (The frame must already exist.)|
|Createparam||The createparam passed to the CREATE event.|
|MdichildinstanceID||The child instance ID. If a null string, the instance ID will be created automatically.|
|Mdichildtitle||The title to appear in the child window's title bar.|
|InitX||The initial x position of a window. (optional)|
|InitY||The initial y position of a window. (optional)|
|WinStruct||The structure of a window as returned from Start_Window() with "GetStructureFlag" set.|
The return value is the fully qualified name of the MDI child if the child window was created successfully. Otherwise a null string is returned. Typically, the full name has the format
MDIChildGroupID : '*' : MDIChildInstanceID.
End_Window(), Start_Window(), Dialog_Box(), Create_Dialog()
To execute the child window called CHILD_WIN in the frame window FRAME_WIN, the call to Start_MDIChild would be:
MDIChildID = Start_MDIChild("CHILD_WIN", "FRAME_WIN", "",| "", "My Child Window", 1)
The return value, if the function was successful, would return child_win*1 which is the child name concatenated with the instance ID.
