    Dialog Based Applications

    Hi, I've been looking for a tutorial (or part of one) that covers the creation of a dialog based application. I haven't been able to find one though, only the creation of a dialog box. But I don't want to have a window... just the dialog. Thank you for any help.

    P.S. Why do my posts never have more than 1-2 lines?

    Edit: Without MFC.
    From C to shining C++!

    Great graphics, sounds, algorithms, AI, pathfinding, visual effects, cutscenes, etc., etc. do NOT make a good game.

    The simple answer is not to create a window. Just create the dialog box.

    int WINAPI WinMain(HINSTANCE hInstance, HINSTANCE hPrevInstance, 
    				   LPSTR iCmdLine, int iCmdShow)
          DialogBox(hInstance, MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDD_DIALOG1),
                           NULL, DialogProc);
          return 0;
    BOOL CALLBACK DialogProc(HWND hWnd, UINT iMsg, WPARAM wParam,
                                                 LPARAM lParam)
