Design a New Dialog

Creating a new win32 dialog is easy and mostly visual. You will probably need a workspace that shows:

  1. The new diagram ('Diagram | New | User Interface win32')
  2. The Win32 User Interface Toolbox ('Diagram | Tooolbox')
  3. The Tagged Values window (Ctrl+Shift+6)

The UI Toolbox

All of the common RC elements can be found on the UI toolbox

The Tagged Values Window

This window is where all the properties of a control can be viewed and edited.

Using the Picture Control

Images from your model (see Image Manager) can be applied by selecting the control on the dialog and pressing Ctrl+Shift+W. You might have to enter the value of the resource ID in the appropriate Tagged Value.
