(Page 9 of 9 )

Dialog controls play an extremely important role in the creation of a fully functional Windows application. You should use them strategically and logically, and place them on your dialog boxes so as to create a simple looking and easy-to-use experience for the users of your applications.

Click on the support link shown below if you would like to download the complete application that demonstrates all of these controls in action.

Please take a look at the list of related links and books below if you’re after more information on controls, DDX or DDV. Join me for part five of this ten part series, where I will discuss device contexts, bitmaps, and some simple drawing techniques.
