The position can be changed in the dialogs own OnInitDialog() function. If you want to position the dialog from where you call DoModal, you need to pass the x/y point in member variables of you dialog class:

CMyDialog dlg;
dlg.m_x = 200;
dlg.m_y = 100;
dlg.DoModal();

---

BOOL CMyDialog::OnInitDialog()
{
    CDialog::OnInitDialog();

    SetWindowPos(NULL, m_x, m_y, 0, 0, SWP_NOZORDER|SWP_NOSIZE);

    return TRUE;
}

I've done as you directed. The position of main dialog or modal
is called by the main dialog change depend where I put SetWindowPos.
But modal always fix over main dialog, that's mean when I the modal
displayed, I can't see the main dialog.
