Hi Rajeshm8484,

Create an OnResize() event handler for the Dialog.

Within the handler, set the desired position of the controls.

When the window maximizes or returns to normal, or when it's resized by dragging a corner/edge the handler will be executed allowing you to move the controls as appropriate.


Good Luck,
Kent

In the attached file list,Interface.txt is the Interface file(i.e.h extension file) and Implementation.txt is the  Implementation file (i.e .cpp extension file) for SizingDialog class.SizingDailog class is derived from CDialog..The dialog in which the controls have to be fitted to screen when maximized or minimized , derive that dialog class from SizingDialog(i.e replace ur Dialog class from SizingDialog everywhere)...In the InitInstance() function of ur dialog call

//////////////For Resizing
       this->AddResizaleCtrl(NULL);

       this->SendMessage(WM_SIZE);

Thanks and Regards,
