Dear Answers2000,

I have used the method suggested by you to resize each component in the dialog before.

void CMyFormView::OnSize(UINT nType, int cx, int cy)
{
   CFormView::OnSize(nType, cx, cy);

   CRect rcClient;
   GetClientRect(&rcClient);

   CRect rcListCtrl;
   m_list1.GetWindowRect(&rcListCtrl);           ScreenToClient((LPPOINT)(&rcListCtrl.left));
   ScreenToClient((LPPOINT)(&rcListCtrl.right));
 m_list1.MoveWindow(rcListCtrl.left,rcListCtrl.top,rcClient.right-rcListCtrl.left-10,rcClient.bottom-rcListCtrl.top);


}

When I was running my application in debug mode, the assertion fail occured:

_AFXWIN_INLINE void CWnd::GetWindowRect(LPRECT lpRect) const
{ ASSERT(::IsWindow(m_hWnd)); ::GetWindowRect(m_hWnd, lpRect); }

But there is no problem in resizing the listCtrl in release mode. What is the reason about this?

Thanks!!!

OnSize() is initially called *before* any childwindows are created.

Modify as follows:

void CMyFormView::OnSize(UINT nType, int cx, int cy)
{
   CFormView::OnSize(nType, cx, cy);

   if(::IsWindow(m_list1.m_hWnd)
   {
      CRect rcClient;
      GetClientRect(&rcClient);

      CRect rcListCtrl;
      m_list1.GetWindowRect(&rcListCtrl);      ScreenToClient((LPPOINT)(&rcListCtrl.left));
      ScreenToClient((LPPOINT)(&rcListCtrl.right));
      m_list1.MoveWindow(rcListCtrl.left,rcListCtrl.top,rcClient.right-rcListCtrl.left-10,rcClient.bottom-rcListCtrl.top);
   }
}

Sorry missed a ending brace:

if(::IsWindow(m_list1.m_hWnd)

Change to:

if(::IsWindow(m_list1.m_hWnd))
{
