    Is there a way to get user input with a dialog box? The reason I ask is Im having trouble getting a dialog to display and the code for getting input from dialog boxes are very confusing. Anyhelp is greatly appreciated.

    TIA,

    There is no break for your WM_COMMAND case/switch in the main callback.

    Watch the return's in the callbacks.

    Try changing the WM_INIT/WM_CREATE returning TRUE (in the about dlg callback) to return FALSE.
