A typical usage would be:

GetDlgItem(IDD_DIALOG_IDENTIFIER)->SetWindowText("New Dialog Title");

SetWindowText is a member function of class CWnd and can be used on any object, including dialogs (class CDialog) derived from CWnd.

No, call SetWindowText for your dialog, not for control. It will set dialog title

I have tried that... and at the point where I go to change the
title, the program crashes :

Sample code :  


CDoorDescript   doordescriptdlg(pDoc, &rearstruct, false);

doordescriptdlg.SetWindowText(CString("Hello"));

doordescriptdlg.DoModal();

Your mistake is that you call SetWindowText BEFORe dialog is created so you program crahes. You must call this function from inside your dialog OnInitDialog.
