Re: modal dialogs

Laurent Arditi <Laurent.Arditi@taloa.unice.fr> wants 
to display a modal dialog window and allow the user to click on
other windows and perform actions on them.  Modal dialogs don't
permit that kind of behavior.  The MCL manual describes the modal-dialog
function as follows:
    "This function makes window the active window, displays it and 
    then intercepts subsequent user events until a return-from-modal-dialog
    is executed...
    Modal dialog boxes may be nested.
If you want to allow the user to click on other windows, you need a
standard modeless dialog, similar to the dialog for copying files
in the Finder.
