Enable/Disable controls on a Modal Dialog

I have a modal dialog that, depending on the contents of a file that it reads on opening, will have certain controls visible, and others not.

Where is the appropriate place to put the ShowWindow() statements.

Thanks, Rick

    You can do it in the OnInitDialog after calling the base class implementation.  AT that point the dialog and controls are created.
