Resizing a dialog & its controls

I have a dialog app which resizes some controls if the user drags the dlg or uses the min/max button on the title bar, but I don't know how to get the notification when the user double-clicks on the title bar.


Here's the msg handlers I have:

   MyDlg::OnSizing( UINT nSide, LPRECT lpRect )
   {
      // Resize edit controls
   }

   MyDlg::OnSysCommand(UINT nID, LPARAM lParam)
   {
      // Check for SC_MAXIMIZE or SC_MINIMIZE
      // and resize edit controls
   }


Also when the main dlg is resized, the edit boxes flash when they get resized. Is there a way to prevent this?
Thanks,

I think double-clicking the title bar is the same as maximizing.

Maybe the following can interest you:

With a few lines of extra code your dialogs and others
become sizable. I use it with pleasure, even in a commercial product.

Bye.
