Re: Configure dialog shim in eeschema to be modeless instead of modal.


Dialog modality has nothing to do with DIALOG_SHIM.  It depends on how
you show the dialog.  See the documentation for wxDialog.

I will warn you up front that modeless dialogs are not trivial to
implement.  I will expect bidirectional data updating between objects in
the main frame window and the dialog using events (take a look and the
find/replace dialog in Eeschema for an example).  Having dialogs
directly access parent window objects and parent windows access dialog
objects directly is not an acceptable solution.
