what do you mean by 'dock two dialog boxes'?

Do you mean you want them side-by-side?  Or do you want both of them docked within some other frame?

To dock within a frame, make then CDialogBar's

To dock side-by-side, you would probably make one dialog always appear next to the other.  I'd respond to the Window pos changed message for the first dialog, and from there update the position of the other dialog.

Yes lock them side by side, but only when one comes within say 20 or 30 pixels of the other.
