Dialog-based MFC apps and menus

I created, in VC++ 6.0, a dialog based MFC app. I want to use a menu in my dialog, only I do not know what parameter I should switch. I cannot find a dialog function anywhere. If this is too complicated, I would instead prefer to write a Win32 app without a window... just with a dialog procedure. How would I do this? Thanks.

I would really like just some working Dialog Box creation code. I know how to do it, but it will not run in VC++ because I don't have enough experience yet and I goofed up somewhere. However, I know it would be easier in MFC to implement a menu in a dialog box. Please supply me with the answer to the least difficult question. Thank you!

Use SetMenu (member of CWnd - the base class of CDialog) to set a menu into your dialog.

The SetMenu function requires a CMenu, so you'll need to construct one of these including loading the menu from your resources.

The Menus send WM_COMMAND messages to your dialog proc/class.

The menu functions for a window/dialog are the same - and are members of CWnd

when you edit the dialog resource , you can set the menu of the dialog.
Open the dialog properties , and select the menu-ID in the comboBox .

the menu will appears when your application open it and will not appear when you test it in VC Studio .

I mean, in MFC, there IS no dialog procedure OR window procedure. It is all classes. I would much rather have some code that would just create a dialog box... no window. I would raise the points but I only have 50. Sorry. I need code with a dialog procedure in it with the UINT parameter. PLZ help!

I know how to do that, I need to know how to manipulate the menu and where I switch the UINT parameter in all that class stuff. I don't see any window or dialog procedure in all my MFC code.

what are you want to do ? add menu to dialog or see the procedure of window .

if it is important to see the windowProc the easiest way is to subclass the window procedure with your own WndProc .

::SetWindowLong(dlg.GetSafeHwnd()......); can subclass the windowProc of the dlg object.
