I am trying to set the postion of a Dialog box in my application. I was looking into how to use the SetWindowPos function, but do not know how to implement this in the dialog's OnInitDialog call. Apparently i need to get the handle of the dialog first.

You seem to be using MFC.  In that case, you already have the handle inside the CDialog class.
Since CDialog is a sub-class of CWnd, you can just call CWnd::SetWindowPos() from your OnInitDialog() function (you can omit the "CWnd::" qualifier).  You don't have to supply the handle, check the documentatation of CWnd::SetWindowPos().

BTW, MFC related questions have a better chance to be correctly answered in the "MFC" area.

By the way, MoveWindow() gets the job done much easier, if all you want is move or resize the window.

Right.  If you don't need to set the Z-order of the window (position it "behind" or "in front of" other windows) than MoveWindow() is better.
