Modal VBA Apps

Hi everyone,

I am new to this territory, so please bear with me.

Is it possible to create Modal Application windows with VBA inside A2K?

By modal I mean Application Windows that can function side-by-side with
the AutoCAD without blocking other commands from working at the same time.

Examples: A2K Properties window, AutoCAD Map Data View window, ...

Thanks,
Arad Gazit

Correct me if I am wrong, but that can only be done in ACAD 2i and above or
using VB (not VBA).

It's actually a modeless app you are talking about. A2Ki supports this,
otherwise you must make it in the form of a vb/c++ .exe file.

With A2K or better, you can use Jorge Lopez's ACCONT.ARX
(http://home.pacbell.net/cprog) to create modeless AutoCAD applications with any
programming language that can create an OCX. With VBA, it's a bit trickier as
you must use a control from Denis Gagne (http://pages.infinit.net/debyte/)
