I want to create dynamic messages using the dynamic dialog. Is there a way to make it grow and expand depending of the amount of test going iside it?
I don't want to cut the text if there are too much words in the message.



Sure.   DialogControlSet() request # 17 may be of interest regarding Control size and perhaps WinPlace() for the overall Dialog.



The other and perhaps simpler option is to use a scrollable control like a "MultiLinebox" control to contain the text.  However, resizing the dialog and the control displaying the text probably gives a better user experience unless it gets too big.
