我正在尝试使用C ++和Windows API创建一个对话框,但我不希望在资源文件中定义对话框。我在网上找不到任何好的东西,我读过的所有例子似乎都没有以编程方式定义对话框。

看一下这个工具包,它描述了如何创建没有资源文件的对话框。它在WTL中,但是我确信你可以直接使用win32 API来分离内部结构来实现相同的功能。

Salam,您好,在这里您可以找到如何在不使用资源文件的情况下使用Windows API对话框。Winapi(C Win32 API,无MFC)教程:

  • 您可以手动使用CreateWindow(或CreateWindowEx)创建主窗口的子窗口,而不是在rc文件中设计对话框。(对于.NET Winforms程序员,这些窗口就像Controls)。

  • 这个过程根本不是图形化的(你需要手动输入每个窗口的位置和大小),但我认为这可以很好地理解如何在底层创建对话框。

  • 不使用真实对话有一些缺点,即在控件之间切换时该选项卡不起作用。


  • 这个例子有一个带有两个按钮的对话框,一个编辑框(.NET winforms程序员会把它想象成一个TextBox)和一个复选框。



  • x86构建
  • x64构建
  • Unicode构建(UNICODE_UNICODE定义)
  • 非Unicode版本(UNICODE_UNICODE不是定义)
  • 使用Visual Studio的C编译器构建
  • 使用Visual Studio的C ++编译器构建
  • 操作系统:Windows 10 64位



// This sample will work either with or without UNICODE, it looks like it's recommended now to use
// UNICODE for all new code, but I left the ANSI option in there just to get the absolute maximum
// amount of compatibility.
// Note that UNICODE and _UNICODe go together, unfortunately part of the Windows API
// uses _UNICODE, and part of it uses UNICODE. 
// tchar.h for example, makes heavy use of _UNICODE, and windows.h makes heavy use of UNOCODE.
#define UNICODE
#define _UNICODE
//#undef UNICODE
//#undef _UNICODE

#include <windows.h>
#include <tchar.h>

内置的窗口类集非常有限,因此您可能会对如何Control使用winapi 定义自己的窗口类(“ s”)感到好奇,请参阅以下文章:

注意:我最初打算这篇文章以编程方式介绍对话框的创建。由于我的错误,我没有意识到你不能只是“显示”窗口作为对话框。不幸的是,我无法得到Raymond Chen提到的设置。
