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);
