DialogBox and resources

hello,

I am having a hard time designing a simple dialog box as a resource and then displaying it modally with the DialogBox() call. Do I have to use LoadResource, FindResource and LockResource to display this? Or should I just be able to design it in the resource editor and simply call DialogBox() to see it; I currently use the latter but I get error code 1812 when I make the call. If it is more complicated than this i would appreciate the steps involved in creating this dialog.

Thank you.

The error code is

//
// MessageId: ERROR_RESOURCE_DATA_NOT_FOUND
//
// MessageText:
//
//  The specified image file did not contain a resource section.
//
#define ERROR_RESOURCE_DATA_NOT_FOUND    1812L

It seems that you forgot to add the .rc file to your project. Apart from that, 'DialogBox()' will do fine. Don't forget to specify the resource ID in the 'MAKEINTRESOURCE()' macor as the 2nd parameter.
