    I believe Dialog Units (DLUs) are based on the size of the font used in dialog boxes (e.g. MS Sans Serif 8-point).


    Nah, actually I just read that from MSDN Library, along with this:-
    "A horizontal DLU is the average width of the dialog box divided by four. A vertical DLU is the average height of the font divided by eight."

    So therefore you would need to find the size in pixels of the font you are using from your dialog in order to figure out the pixel size of a DLU...
