I need to draw a graph like graphic item in a Dialog Box (MFC) which is changed during the execution of the program. How do I do this? Is the graphic item placed as a View item?

Place a 'picture control' (it's a little landscape on the Developer Studio control palette) on the dialog, and change the properties to Type: Frame, Color: Black.  Change the ID to something like IDC_STATIC_MYGRAPH.

Hit Ctrl-W to bring up the Classwizard for your dialog, and override WM_PAINT.

In the new CMyDialog::OnPaint(), you can use the following code to discover the bounding rectangle of the frame control, in dialog window coordinates:

      RECT rectDest, rectParent;
      CWnd *pwnd=GetDlgItem(IDC_STATIC_MYGRAPH);

      if(pwnd) {
            
            pwnd->GetWindowRect(&rectDest);
            GetWindowRect(&rectParent);
            rectDest.left-=rectParent.left;
            rectDest.right-=rectParent.left;
            rectDest.top-=rectParent.top;
            rectDest.bottom-=rectParent.top;

                ... draw in rectDest area only ...

          }

This code may get the handle of the control, but code is also needed to paint or draw the image into the control.
I need to put a hdib into the control.
