    [RESOLVED] Modal dialogs

    Hi everyone,

    I have a modal dialog box which is called by the main thread. This dialog has no parent (appears at center screen, overlapped, and shown in taskbar). When the user clicks "Save" in the dialog, the dialog procedure receives the command and displays a save file dialog (GetSaveFileName).
    The problem is that the second dialog (Save Dialog) doesn't work at all. It can't be activated, and seems kind of frozen (can't be closed, buttons and scroll bars are frozen). Here's my code:

    int WINAPI WinMain(HINSTANCE hInstance, HINSTANCE hPrevInstance, LPSTR lpCmdLine, int nCmdShow) {
    	DialogBox(hInstance, MAKEINTRESOURCE(101), NULL, DialogProc);
    	MSG msg;
    	while (GetMessage(&msg, NULL, 0, 0) != 0)
    	return (int)msg.wParam;
    INT_PTR CALLBACK DialogProc(HWND hWnd, UINT message, WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam) {
    HDC hdc; PAINTSTRUCT ps;
    switch (message) {
    	case WM_COMMAND:
    		switch(LOWORD(wParam)) {
    			case IDSAVE:
    				OFN.hwndOwner = hWnd;
    				//PROBLEM IS HERE. The save file dialog is half-frozen and never returns.
    				if (GetSaveFileName(&OFN)) {[...]}
    				return DefWindowProc(hWnd, message, wParam, lParam);
    		return true;
    	case WM_PAINT:
    		hdc = BeginPaint(hWnd, &ps);
    		EndPaint(hWnd, &ps);
    	case WM_INITDIALOG:
    		return true;
    	case WM_CLOSE:
    		return true;
    	case WM_DESTROY:
    		return true;
    		return DefWindowProc(hWnd, message, wParam, lParam);
    	return false;
    Whatever dialog type I put at this line (print dialog, modal dialog, modeless dialog), it doesn't behave properly. What am I missing?
    I tried with OFN.hwndOwner = NULL, but doesn't work.

    Thanks in advance!
