    Change
    Code:
                   case ID_about : 
                         { 
                         // Code here 
                         }
    To
    Code:
                   case ID_about : 
                         { 
                         // Code here 
                         MessageBox(hwnd, "About", "My About Box", MB_OK);
                         }
    If your serious about this stuff, buy Programming Windows by Charles Petzold (SP?). Its a good book (may be able to find a chm avaliable on the net somewhere too).

    Edit: BTW, the type of dialog you want to make is whats usually made by whats called a Resource Editor. VC++ 6.0 has one, but I'm not sure if devC++ does (never used it).

    Wow. Thanks. Is there any way I can link that to a rc or have in the same file to change font and stuff? Like this.

    Code:
    IDD_ABOUT DIALOG DISCARDABLE  0, 0, 239, 66
    STYLE DS_MODALFRAME | WS_POPUP | WS_CAPTION | WS_SYSMENU
    CAPTION "My About Box"
    FONT 8, "MS Sans Serif"
    BEGIN
        DEFPUSHBUTTON   "&OK",IDOK,174,18,50,14
        PUSHBUTTON      "&Cancel",IDCANCEL,174,35,50,14
        GROUPBOX        "About this program...",IDC_STATIC,7,7,225,52
        CTEXT           "An example program showing how to use Dialog Boxes\r\n\r\nby theForger",
                        IDC_STATIC,16,18,144,33
    END
    I'd like to be able to change font in main but a rc is good. Thanks so far

    Bumping threads will get them closed, so don't do it. Read the forum guidelines.

    Also, this thread is more to do with Windows programming than C++, so it's moving to the Windows forum...
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    Regarding resource files, they're pretty easy to add. I assume you are using Dev-C++, your code looks very much like the windows app template code.

    So, create your .rc file. Press Alt+P to open project options. Go to the files tab, select your rc file in the list to the left and make sure that 'include in compilation' is checked (on the right)... Click 'Ok'..

    Now if your resource file is correct you can now use dialog templates (use the winprog tut, it explains it well IMO.).

    Also, if you want to change the font on a dialog or a non-dialog window you can send the WM_SETFONT message to it. You'll have to create a font unless you use the default stock font(s).

    Well, first use CreateFont() to make your font... Then send the WM_SETFONT message using the created font.

    I don't think you can change the text or the colors on a popup message though. I think it's best to use a dialog for that.
