New->Resource Script..
Access the resource script and insert a dialog. Then you''ll see the "Dialog Painter" and a floating "Controls Palette".

Hmmm....i do that and it says, resource.h this is being used by existng rc file, overwrite? then i click over right and a file is created. Then i righ click on the file and insert, then a box comes up with options, dialogue being one of them so i click it and a dialogue box is created, not the painter thing i''m after, was that right?

A thank you is appreciated You are in the painter right now. There is a toolbox-window where you can add buttons, list, text to your dialog.

try Tools->Customize->Toolbars then check the Controls checkbox. the control bar should then appear as a docked window within the resource editor window.
