    Hi, I have an MFC dialog project. I have a general function (without a class) that I have been using to search a directory for a certain file. This function works fine with my parent dialog. Whenever I try to use it with a modal child dialog it crashes at
    Code:
    return::CallWindowProc(m_pfnSuper, m_hWnd, nMsg, wParam, lParam);
    This is the declaration of the function:
    Code:
    int SearchDirectory(std::vector<std::string> &refvecFiles,
                        const std::string        &refcstrRootDirectory,
                        const std::string        &refcstrExtension,
                        bool                     bSearchSubdirectories );
    Please help !!! Thank you :)

    In case anyone is ever curious I solved this by putting SearchDirectory into the parent's class then created a friend function in the child class.

    Still think this was strange...

    Ok disregard that last post. The problem is not fixed. I didn't realize that when I tested it there was no file in the directory so it returned without an issue. When it does find a file and tries to return a vector of that file it fails spectacularly
