Convert dialog units to pixels

I am using MASM32 and to not want to code dialogs in dialog units. I would like to be able to define the dialog in a resource file.

Using a resource editor to create a dialog and its controls is the easiest and fastest way. The problem is that the dimensions of the these pieces are in dialog units, not pixels; so when you run the program, the dialog and its controls are not the same size as expressed in the dialog editor. Ideally, I would like to be able to use pixels from the start, but at least be able to convert to pixels. The web is full of ways to correct this, but I have been unable to find a coding example in MASM32 (or any other version of assembly).

My solution was to create the dialog and control and then use SetWindowPos to put them where I want. This function uses pixels.
