preCreateWindow is the function which let you change the window style before it created .
but the dialog 's style is defined in resource .

in the VC Online help ,it not refer to  changing the style of dialog by preCreateWindow .



if you want to change the style of dialog ,you can call ModifyStyle or ModifyStyleEx in OnInitDialog

you can't do "change the lpszClass field of the CREATESTRUCT"
if you change it ,it will not be a dialog.

i guess you want to create a new window with the looking defined in the resource.

so you can derive the class from CFormView ,CDialogBar, they can be the child window.
