    Question Set of dialogs in a row (like a wizard)

    Alright I'm at the point in my program where I want to make a wizard. It's like a database program. If the user hits "new" I want a dialog to pop up asking him her some questions, and when that dialog is done, they hit a "next" button, brings up the next screen etc.

    I know how to make dialogs and everything. I guess the way I would go about doing it is by making a dialog, and then making the others the same size and make them start in the same (x,y) coordinates? Is there another way that I don't know about? Can anyone offer any tips/ideas/advice? I just want to make sure that I don't waste the time doing this to find out that there was a "dialogwizard hwnd" class or something.

    Windows API has functionality in place to help you do this sort of thing. Look for examples on how to use Property Sheets. This link is probably a good place to start:
