    Centering

    Take a look at the attached picture please. I was able to create a dialog box like that but I had a really hard time trying to center everything. I was wondering if you guys could tell me an easy way to handle this. Thanks.

    Are you creating the dialogue box with a resource editor or are you doing it during run time by creating the controls yourself?

    edit - Do the larger boxes that the controls sit in represent child windows to the main window?

    I use a resource editor.

    The outer box is the dialog box itself. The other large boxes are GROUPBOXes.

    Well the resource editor should have a grid view that should make everything pretty easy to center, it is WYSISWG editing after all.

    If that doesn't suit your needs you could always iterate through your controls during the DialogBox creation (in your DialogProc) and use MoveWindow to center them using code.

    Hey, sorry. What I meant is that I am writing the resource file myself using Notepad
