I want to create one parent and one child form in vc++, pass the control temporarily to the child form, input some values in it, pass these values to the parent form and then resume the parent execution from where it was left before child activation.
How can I do that all of these in visual c++.
I know the concept of MDI in visual c++ but I don't know how to do the above task...

Here is the idea: who needs MDI, ever? Why torturing yourself and scaring off your users?
Do yourself a great favor: do not use MDI at all. You can do much easier to implement design without it, with much better quality. MDI is highly discouraged even by Microsoft, in fact, Microsoft dropped it out of WPF and will hardly support it. More importantly, you will scare off all your users if you use MDI. Just don't. Please see:

I can explain what to do instead. Please see my past answers:
