    How to disable a dialog window?

    I have hopefully a quick question. I created a resource dialog for a program and I am trying use SendMessage or SendDlgItemMessage to call the Diabled property for that dialog window. I can't seem to find any message that calls it directly or indirectly, does anyone know how to set the Disable property of a dialog window?

    Thank you much,

    Kevin
