The DLL cannot access the window handle directly as far as i know. expose a function from the DLL which has a [in] parameter as an handle to the window.

AFxGetMainWnd() gets the handle of the active window.

You can pass the handle to the dll through a parameter of a function.
I mean something like the following:

_imp_MyDllInit(HWND hMainWnd);
