I have an issue with setting window position of a Popup window behind a WS_CHILD property sheet. My application has controls bars, a WS_CHILD Style property sheet & a few modeless dialog boxes in a view. users works with multiple dialog boxes.

I have a requirement that when a user does a action say on click on button in a control bar or select a menu, one specific dialog needs to go to the bottom of Z Order behind all the existing dialogs. Details are as below:

1. I have a Property sheet which is created using a WS_CHILD style
Create(pParent, WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE);
2. I have a Modeless dialog say CMyViewDlg. This is a popup dialog box displayed as modeless dialog.
3. User does a action and i use the following line of code to send the CMyViewDlg to the bottom of Z-Order.
pMyViewDlg->SetWindowPos(&CWnd::wndBottom, 0, 0, 0, 0, SWP_NOACTIVATE |SWP_NOMOVE | SWP_NOSIZE);

This change in Z-oder sends my requested dialog behind all the dialogs except the first created Modeless Property Sheet. Is there any issue with the property sheet that a dialog cannot go behind it?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
