    I need to get Dialog handle

    I created modal dialog with DialogBoxIndirectParam and dialogtemplate structure.
    How do I get handle (HWND) of dialog?

    Without handle of this dialog it causes problems showing another dialog because i dont have parent handle.

    The hwndDlg value for the dialog box procedure for the WM_INITDIALOG message (or any dialog message) has the HWND value of the dialog box.
