Have greated my own dialog class which uses it's own DLGTEMPLATE instead of a resource.
Problem: Ignores the size I send it.
Solution: Called SetWindowPos(...,....,...) from within OnInitDialog() which solves it but this is a sloppy
way of doing it as I'm asked the dimension's early in DLGTEMPLATE ->cx and cy

Bitmap (dimensions 600 x 300);

->cx = 600 // should be width in pixels of a bmp
->cy = 300 // should be height in pixels of a bmp

created window ends up nearly twice as big a the bmp.

The problem is that the units in the DLGTEMPLATE are specified in DialogBaseUnits (see GetDialogBaseUnits()), as opposed to device units or pixels. You will need to the conversion ahead of time. By the way, SetWindowPos() uses device units.

GetDialogBaseUnits() does not return correct dialog base units if the dialog is not using the system font. As the dialog was only displaying a bimap I had'nt included the DS_SETFONT style  flag so I was still getting the wrong result..
