I have a dialog box with a bitmap background and some buttons on top of the background. Anyway, if there is a change in the systems text size (one of the screen properties for you desktop in contol panel) the screens dpi is changed and my buttons are misaligned as the bitmap is a different size due to the dpi change. Is there some way to compensate for this.. without having to write code to line up my buttons ( I have a lot of button code, if there was a way to have the dialog reconfigure for the difference in DPI that would be great)?

I would suggest you not use a dialog box in this case. Use a window instead and create the button yourself by using CButton::Create in the window's OnCreate.
