restricting a picture's size in a dialog

Using : NT 4.0, VC++ 5.0.

Hi all,
I have a dialog box which displays a frame of a .avi (for example) . My problem is that AVI files are in different frame size, so my picture is sometimes huge and sometimes  very small...
How can I restrict a pictures size in a dialog box, so it won't cover other dialog controls?

Thanks a lot..

I am displaying bitmaps in a dialog using a picture control, type rectangle, and code something like this:

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

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

}

and then display the picture in the rectDest.

Could this help
