MF_SEPARATOR
Draws a horizontal dividing line. This flag is used only in a drop-down menu, submenu, or shortcut menu. The line cannot be grayed, disabled, or highlighted. The lpNewItem and uIDNewItem parameters are ignored.


Use AppendMenu API

Hello John, unfortunately that is not what I'm looking for: you have posted about menu item separators.

I am looking for separators in a dialog, as seen in the "Object Properties" screenshot posted above.

Sorry,

I found this on MSDN

Developers: You can implement a separator with an etched rectangle with a height of one.

In the dialog editor select a "group box", give it no title, select the client edge attribute and set it's height to 1.
