    couple questions

    Hello again, i know im asking alot of questions today, but im really motivated right now to get this working good =)

    #1 Dynamic Dialogs
    what i need to do is create a dialog based on input from the use, like the X,Y size values, but i cant find anywhere that has this information stored, and when i goto edit the dialog it brings the dialog up in an editor, is there a way in MSVC++ i can open its source and not the editor? so that i can make its size variable based?

    #2 System Info
    whats the best way to grab system information, like clock speed, RAM/RAM Usage, total fixed disk space, and free space, i already know how to grab the volume label, but not those others, also, how can i grab the computers name its known by on a network, and its local IP.

    file/open/
    make sure the rc file is opened as text. there is a drop down in the open file dialog

    Dynamic dialogs are created with CreateWindow() and CreateWindowEx()

    AFAIK you can not set the dialogs size in the script.rc to a variable value.

    Another way is to resize the dialog using SetWindowPos()

    yes you can. sort of. compile time variables are possible in the rc file but I hate to do it. It screws up your resource editor so you can't use it. But you're right about runtime variables
