"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can use GetWindowRect to get the dimensions of the current dialog.  You can use SetWindowPos or MoveWindow to resize the window.  Remember that CDialog is a CWnd so you can use CWnd functions on it.


CMyDialog dlg;
CRect rcSize;

//Gets the dimensions fo the dialog box
dlg.GetWindowRect(rcSize);

//CRect has Width() and Height() member functions
int nWidth = rcSize.Width();
int nHeight = rcSize.Height();

dlg.SetWindowPos(&wndTop, 0,0,50,50, 0);
