CWnd::CenterWindow

Centers a window relative to its parent.

void CenterWindow(
   CWnd* pAlternateOwner = NULL 
);

Parameters

pAlternateOwner
Pointer to an alternate window relative to which it will be centered (other than the parent window).

Remarks

Usually called from CDialog::OnInitDialog to center dialog boxes relative to the main window of the application. By default, the function centers child windows relative to their parent window, and pop-up windows relative to their owner. If the pop-up window is not owned, it is centered relative to the screen. To center a window relative to a specific window which is not the owner or parent, the pAlternateOwner parameter may be set to a valid window. To force centering relative to the screen, pass the value returned by CWnd::GetDesktopWindow as pAlternateOwner.

Example

BOOL CAboutDlg::OnInitDialog() 
{
   CDialog::OnInitDialog();
   
   CenterWindow();
   return TRUE;
}
