Creating a New Dialog Box

To create a new dialog box

  1. In Resource View, right-click your .rc file, then choose Add Resource from the shortcut menu.


    If your project doesn't already contain an .rc file, please see Creating a New Resource Script File.

  2. In the Add Resource dialog box, select Dialog in the Resource Type list, then click New.

    If a plus sign (+) appears next to the Dialog resource type, it means that dialog box templates are available. Click the plus sign to expand the list of templates, select a template, and click New.

    The new dialog box opens in the Dialog editor.

    You can also open existing dialog boxes in the Dialog Box editor for editing.
