I've rewritten the initialization of DarkGDK. So I can now let run DarkGDK easily in a child window of an application.
A small disadvantage is, you can not to retrieved the input devices from darkgdk (mouse and keyboard). This task will then take the application.

I like to use wxWidgets in connection with wxFormBuilder. That's why I made ​​the effort.

I've attached the executable with app-source. so you can see how it works

oh nice!

For keyboard input, I've never used the DarkGDK commands, I use GetKeyState(). It's pretty direct to the keyboard and independent of focus.

Here's the Microsoft documentation on it:

Judging what we see is the greatest blinder and self-limiter in the universe.

What we perceive is never reality. It is only a story we tell ourselves based on our current perspective, which has far more to do with our beliefs about ourselves than with anything else.
