Using VC++ 2019 CE under Win 10 building a Windows
Form application.
I would like to add controls to my form by using the ToolBox dialog editor.
I can use the dialog editor to add controls to the Help| About Message dialog.
So I know the Dialog editor is present. But how do I add controls to
the main form which now is blank and has only File and Help menu items ?
TIA
Bob

    From the toolbox flyout you should be able to just drag them over and drop on form.
