    If I open a GeDialog-derived dialog asDLG_TYPE_MODAL_RESIZEABLE on MacOS X then there is no way to close the dialog from the OS GUI as the close and dock buttons are disabled.  There is then no way to close Cinema 4D and one must Force Quit from the Activity Monitor.  Is this expected behavior?

    This behaviour is intended. You have to add appropriate buttons (e.g. "ok, cancel") to the modal dialog, as there are different conventions for handling the close button (in the window title bar) in operating systems (on some the close button acts as cancel, on others as OK, ...).

    Best regards,

    I've gone ahead and added a "Close" button to the dialog.  Thanks for the information, Wilfried! :)
