Hello,

is it possible to change the icon or bitmap of a mfc resizeable dialog? If this is not possible, is there a way to make a dialog resizable without the gripper, like with a own image /Icon/Button?

Thanks,

Ocrana

Ocrana,
I am trying to understand your need. I think your primary objective is to change the icon of the dialog box in MFC. If this is true, it can be done.
Usually the icon files are available under ../res folder. You can change the icon for a dialog
1) either by editing the icon file
2) modifying the icon entry in the rc file (see below) - to point to your icon instead of the default.
You may have to recompile your rc file for the changes to take effect.

Hope this helps!
// Icon with lowest ID value placed first to ensure application icon
// remains consistent on all systems.
IDR_MAINFRAME           ICON    DISCARDABLE     "res\\TestApp.ico"
IDI_ICON1               ICON    DISCARDABLE     "res\\icon1.ico"

In case, if your objective is to change/redraw the gripper, it can be done too. You can subclass the CControlBar class in your code and override its methods according to your needs. Mainly you have to override the DrawGripper method and the DoPaint method. You may also have to handle the OnNcPaint message.

Once this is done, in your application, use your derived class member variable.
