I want to write a RES file dialog extractor and would like some docs other than just general header information, does anyone have a link with detailed docs.

What language do you want to write a RES file in?  There are many tools that allow you to write RES files including most of the Microsoft programming suite.

I am not really interested in creating a RES file, I want to decompile a MASM res file to extract the dialogs. I have decode the header information to identify a dialog in the RES but have no information on fields for the data section of the dialog.

Actually thanks for the help but I managed to figure it out for myself, the DLGTEMPLATEEX and DLGITEMTEMPLATEEX structures follow the same format as the compiled RES file so after the header is decoded the values just have to be plugged into these structures and it seems to work fine.

Glad you got it working.  What you need to do now is to post a zero-point question in community support asking for your points to be refunded and the question to be placed in PAQ (previously asked question).  You can get to the Community Support site on the left side of the page using the tree, or click here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Community_Support/  Make sure you give them the question number for this question (20535467 as shown in the URL) or the URL itself.  Thanks and have a great day.

I don't really have much use for the points, actually I had forgotten about them so I'll pass them along to you :)
