the Brian....

what if u have a 20 buttons on a dilaogBox?

do u want to write 20 times the code
((CButton*)GetDlgItem(ID_CONTROL))->ShowWindow(SW_HIDE) ????
for each one of the controls (buttons in this case) u need this line ....

what u should do is use GetNextDlgTabItem, with a simple loop u can retrieve all controls in ones dialogBox and hide/show/disable/enable/resize etc.

got it ????
