Hi,

Can add a group box having more than five sides to a dialog.  The group box will look like this:

|-------------------------------------
|                                             |
|                                             |
|                         |----------------
|                         |
|                         |
|---------------------

Thanks

Not using the standard resource editor group box control you cant.

However, if you want to take the time, you can develop a shape similar to the above by doing the following:

1) Add a picture control to your dialog, and change the edge to be "etched" in the properties window.

2) To get a vertical edge, resize the picture control so it appears as a vertical edge by moving either the left or right side to the opposite side.

3) Add another picture control, again with an etched edge.  To get a horizontal edge, drag the top or the bottom of the picture control down or up respectively so that you end up with a horizontal edge.

Create more horizontal and vertical edges as required, then position them to make the shape required.

Please see http://img455.imageshack.us/img455/409/egdw3.jpg for a horizontal and vertical edge created in this manner.
