If you read the doc for DOCTEMPLATE you will see that you need to allocate other items directly following the structure in memory. Namely menu array, class array and title array. there is also variable amount of DLGITEMTEMPLATE items to be allocated following this in memory.

Memory view:

0x0000 DIALOGTEMPLATE
0x.... MENU array
0x.... Window Class array
0x.... Title array
0x.... one or more DLGITEMTEMPLATE structs...

I suggest you take a look at the DLGTEMPL sample, it is quite a complicated task to do dynamic dialog creation like this.
