Is it possible to have a function in a class that calls DialogBoxIndirect() and passes to it DialogProc() function which is a non-static member of the same class?

>>which is a non-static member of the same class?

In short words - no.

A class' member function can only be a callback when it's declared 'static'. All C++ member functions are passed a 'this' pointer as a hidden argument to maintain the method/object relation. The only way to get around this is declaring the member as 'static', so no 'this' pointer is used (and the parameter list matchs the one of a callback funcfion).
