A round dialog box!

Ever wondered how those cute little round dialog boxes are created. I too wondered for some time. But let me tell you it is easy, take a look:

Do this from OnInitDialog!

//Create a region object globally.
CRgn m_EllipticRegion;

//a rect object
CRect crDialogRect;

//get your dialog size
this->GetClientRect(crDialogRect);

//Now create the elliptic region from the client rect
m_EllipticRegion.CreateEllipticRgn(0/*x*/,
0/*y*/,
crDialogRect.Width()/*width*/,
crDialogRect.Height() /*Height*/
);

//create a round dialog
this->SetWindowRgn(m_EllipticRegion, TRUE);

See I told you it’s easy 🙂
