Is it possible to convert a dialog box from modal to modeless.

Where do you use dialog boxes in Base?
Base has forms with different controls (Buttons, dropdown boxes, check boxes), but no dialogs!
Maybe you mean the Basic macro language. Then better ask in the macro forum.
OpenOffice 3.1.1 (2.4.3 until October 2009) and LibreOffice 3.3.2 on Windows 2000, AOO 3.4.1 on Windows 7
There are several macro languages in OOo, but none of them is called Visual Basic or VB(A)! Please call it OOo Basic, Star Basic or simply Basic.

Thanks Villeroy, I have research ahead. I have already surmised that the OOo dialog box does not seem to have been developed with the idea of having it modeless.

As for the choice of the base forum, I considered both the base and macro forums but opted for the base forum under the assumption the the dialog is only a specialized window with controls etc...
It is sometime difficult to choose the correct forum but it always is done with the best intentions.

I have marked this post as Solved and if I have any other questions after reading and researching the non-modal Dialog post on the OOo forum, I will make a new post.
