    Resize Dialog Box via Code :: MFC

    Hi.

    I would like to know is it possible and how to internally (program) resize a dialog box. For example:

    Code:
    ---------------------
    |                       |
    |edit box           |
    |button             |
    |                       |
    ---------------------
    Given a dialog box with that looks like the one above, I would like to programmably resize it.

    Code:
    --------------------
    |                      |
    |edit box          |
    |button            |
    |                      |
    |                      |
    |                      |
    |                      |
    --------------------
    In other words, I would like to expand and contracts the dialog frame.

    Thanks,

    I create them from scratch based on the PC's screen resolution using CreateWindow (Ex).

    If you are using a dialog template you will need to

    find all the controls (children on dialog)
    get size of child
    calc the new dimensions
    SetWindowPos() to change the sizes

    I would, depending on the dialogs complexity, kill it and start again.
