    Hi everyone,

    i'm quite new at glui, and i 'd like to know if there is any kind of method to make a sub-window modal, which means than the user can't do anything else until the subwindow is closed.

    I've looked over the forum but i couldn't find anything helpful...

    any ideas ?

    thanks in advance

      GLUI uses GLUT for handling the opening of windows and processing mouse input etc.
      GLUT cannot create modal windows such as you seek. Therefore GLUI cannot either.

      GLUT is like a huge millstone around GLUI's neck.

      But it's also part of what makes GLUI so easy to use.
