The Dialog Editor toolbar contains buttons for arranging the layout of controls on the dialog box, for example size and alignment. Dialog Editor toolbar buttons correspond to commands on the Format menu. For details, see Accelerator Keys for the Dialog Editor.

When you are in the Dialog editor, you can toggle the display of the Dialog Editor toolbar by selecting it from the list of available toolbars and windows.

To show or hide the dialog editor toolbar

  • On the View menu click Toolbars then choose Dialog Editor from the submenu.

    NoteNote:

    The Dialog Editor toolbar is displayed by default when you open a dialog box resource in the Dialog editor; however, if you explicitly close the toolbar, you will need to invoke it the next time you open a dialog box resource.
