    Question N00b question

    hellow,

    i'm a beginner in C++ but i'm a quick learner.
    i have 3 years of experience in Visual Basic and now i want to learn a more advanced programming language.

    so im starting with a simple application.

    i want to show a normal dialog with an OK and Cancel button,
    i have created a resource file and added a dialog with the name IDD_DIALOG1.

    now i would like to know;

    if i start the program how i can show the dialog

    if anyone wants to help me, im looking for a simple code snipped and very much comments (explanation)

    (sorry for my bad english)

    Greatings and Many thanks from MightyMike

    Code:
    int WINAPI WinMain(HINSTANCE hInstance, HINSTANCE hPrevInstance,
    	LPSTR lpCmdLine, int nCmdShow)
    {
       return DialogBox(hInstance, MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDD_DIALOG1), NULL, DlgProc);
       // This code is self explanitory, if you don't understand it, you should take a tut.
    }

    Well, you could look a couple of threads up in this very board to the sticky thread hidden in plain view with the cryptic title of Windows programming links.
