You can do this in the WM_INITDIALOG message response with a call to
BOOL MoveWindow(  HWND hWnd, // handle to window
  int X,          // horizontal position  
  int Y,          // vertical position
  int nWidth,     // width  
  int nHeight,    // height
  BOOL bRepaint   // repaint flag);

AIFa,

It is the correct function, but all I had to do was :

MoveWindow(50,50,300,500); //for example

no BOOL, no HWND needed.

Not sure why. Anyway, it does not matter as long as it works.

Thanks,
A.
