Hi,

I get an assertion when I move a control window in a dialog box in response to the first WM_SIZE message the dialog receives. The assertion tells me that the control is not a valid window. It looks like the control is not fully created when I receive the message.

Can someone explain me what's going on. There is obviouly something I don't catch.

Thanks for your help.

All right. All control window are not valid when dialog window receives WM_SIZE message first time. Do what you want in OnInitDialog method or at first WM_PAINT message receiving.

Just to make sure I understand everything

What you're saying is that it is normal to receive a WM_SIZE message before OnInitDialog is called and there's nothing I can do about it? right.

Thanks
Eric
