Dialog Properties: More Styles
Control  
Creates a dialog box that works well as a child window of another dialog box, much like a page in a property sheet. This style allows the user to tab among the control windows of a child dialog box, use its accelerator keys, and so on. Type: Bool. Default: False.

This is the complete information i've found about it. I have no idea how it works to display other dialogs as control in a modal dialog box.

a sample program would be fine.

I think this style is for when you display multiple dialogs using CreateDialog.

HWND CreateDialog(
    HINSTANCE hInstance,      // handle to application instance
    LPCTSTR lpTemplate,      // identifies dialog box template name  
    HWND hWndParent,      // handle to owner window
    DLGPROC lpDialogFunc       // pointer to dialog box procedure
   );
How can I control the position of the child dialog.
I'd like to use a CDialog class for the child dialog.

Ok, you can use the CDialog class, call the Create member to create it, and set the position in the OnInitDialog memeber.

Create a CDialog based dialog for each dialog.
CDlg dlg;
dlg.Create(IDD_DLOG1, hwndParent);

BOOL
CDlg::OnInitDialog()
{
MoveWindow(X1, Y1, X2, Y2);
}

Works fine. Exept i can't see any control.
My child dialog contains four static text elements and four ddlboxes.

Create returns TRUE.

You weren't supposed to see any control. DS_CONTROL is when you create more then one dialog, it will allow you to use tab to switch between them, that's it. the appearence of the dialog doesn't change

The second parameter of the CreateDialog must be the handle of the dialog

Yes, the second variable of CDialog::Create should be a parent dialog handle
