    Editing the main dialog when starting from a VS MFC project?

    I used VS to create the standard MFC project. When I run the program now, I get a window with a menu, toolbar, and a blank dialog region. My question is how can I edit this region? It's not in the resource explorer, or anywhere else that I can see.

    >>My question is how can I edit this region?

    Could you be more specific?
    Edit how?


    add controls?

    change background?

    change shape and size?
