Hi, was just wondering how i docked a dialog to under my nicklist, i have seen some pretty cool screen shots of such things, but was wondering how i did that myself ?, have been searching the internet, some one suggested using MDX, but i haven't a clue about using it, altho i have been to the authors website and have the MDX.dll on my system, plus i have read the dox n stuff, i'm still stuck frown

Thanks

Let me translate, I'm pretty sure that this is what he said:

Hi, was just wondering how I can dock a dialog under my nicklist. I have seen some screenshots of this being done, but was wondering how to do it? Someone suggested using MDX, but I haven't a clue about using it, although I have been to the authorsí website and have the MDX.dll on my system. I've been searching the internet, plus I read the docs and stuff, Iím still stuck.

Yeah:
a)the dox = the docs
b)n = and

That's COOL! How did you manage to translate?!?! grin
I don't mean to insult you, but i'm kidding. Listen to this to:
English is not my mother lang (I'm Greek), so i learnt it pretty good. The guy is using Past Simple to phrase a wish.
e.g:
I hope I made it :P

This is a post to all who just posted, i'm just replying to xrn0id, cos he's the last one here. grin

Umm yeah dox = documentation, yeah i shoulda made that more clear, but what i am trying to do was create a dialog with some buttons on it, that do stuff, such as ban and kick, but have it docked or made part of just under the nicklist,

Here is a screen shot of what i mean



In this picture, you will see my nicklist, and underneath that, is the dialog that i want "Docking to" Like i said i have read about MDX, and just cant firgure it out.

Thanks

I guess I was wrong. The way he phrased it originally was a bit confusing. But now that he posted the screenshot it's pretty obvious that he already has this window docked. I guess he's trying to undock it?

I've never used this docking feature before so I don't know the answer to that question.

No, no , no

It's not docked yet, the screen shot just looks like that, as i am trying to get my point across, as to what i would like in the end result, i just edited the screen shot, to make smaller pic, if i actually took a screen shot of my whole mirc, then it would take up 1024x768 screen res, and i dunno bout u or not, but thats more than average for somebody with a 14" monitor, and 800x600 screen res (I have a 15" monitor, and like a big display)

All i need is a snippet of information as to how to actually get the dialog to be docked or whatever to under the nicklist.

I can still move that dialog about the screen, but i would like it at the side.

OK, i got it working finally, but what i want is something like

This type of thing

You see that Control Panel in the screenshot, that is "Docking" and i think MDX.dll was used, but i dont know how to do it myself, the MDX documentation doesn't tell me, all i want is my buttons like that, but not not like the control panel in teh screen shot, i want to know what MDX code i need to do that with my buttons.
