    Problems with ShowFindDialog function in C++

    Hi,

    I've discovered a problem with using the ShowFindDialog function in a C++ program using Mappoint 2002. When the routine is active for more than 5 seconds or so, a message is displayed stating that "the server is busy" and only allows an option to retry. This function can never exit and the program is effectively locked.

    Has anybody else encountered this problem and has anybody found a way around the solution.

    Thanks for any assitance anyone can offer

    Problems with ShowFindDialog function in C++

    For people's information, I've now discovered the problem with the ShowFindDialog() function hanging. It's connected to the windows timers.

    If any timers have been initialised using the SetTimer() routine, either using a callback function or acting on WM_TIMER messages, the timer needs to be disabled (using KillTimer) whilst the ShowDialogFunction is used. The timers then have to be reinitialised after ShowFindDialog() has exited.
