    Dialog don't show background or title

    I'm new to Dialogs, so bear with me if I've done something stupid with a file.

    I use Dev C++ to compile, and ResEd to make the resource files.

    I've made a simple Dialog programme, with 2 buttons and 2 blocks of text using ResEd:
    Code:
    IDD_DLG1 DIALOGEX 6,5,305,129
    CAPTION "About The Author"
    FONT 8,"MS Sans Serif",0,0
    STYLE 0x80CF0080
    BEGIN
      CONTROL "OK",IDD_OK,"Button",0x50010000,234,31,54,13
      CONTROL "CANCEL",IDD_CANCEL,"Button",0x50010000,234,60,54,13
      CONTROL "About the Author",IDC_GRP1,"Button",0x50000007,14,18,192,87
      CONTROL "change this to text",IDC_STC1,"Static",0x50000000,18,38,182,63
    END
    I call upon the Dialog with a simple menu:

    Code:
     
    case ID_MDIALOG:
         DialogBox(GetModuleHandle(NULL), MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDD_DLG1), hwnd, DialogProc);
         break;
    Now i get no errors or warnings, but the Title bar and the background doesn't show, exept for the in the IDC_STC1 section where the BackGround shows.

    I have no idea whats wrong, but any help is appreciated

    Do you have a header file where the values for IDD_OK, IDD_CANCEL, IDC_GRP1, and IDC_STC1 are defined? Also:
    > CONTROL "About the Author",IDC_GRP1,"Button",0x50000007,14,18,192,87
    It looks like the width and height of this button might be a bit much (192, 87).
