My MFC dialog based application has a system menu that I added using the dialog resource editor. I need to either delete or disable the maximize command from this system menu.
How can I do this?

You'll have to put this code in the InitDialog() function of your dialog class.

You also need to find the ID resource for the Minimize funtion and replace minimizeID with it.

CMenu *sysMenu = GetSystemMenu(FALSE);
sysMenu->EnableMenuItem(minimizeID, MF_GRAYED);
