Size and Placement

To display information clearly, make the dialog box no larger than necessary.

NoteUsers may have a screen resolution as low as 640W480. If you are developing applications on displays using a higher resolution, remember to verify that your dialog boxes display properly at lower resolutions.

By default, AutoCAD initially displays all dialog boxes in the center of the graphics window. However, you can specify that dialog boxes display at an alternate location (such as the last location specified by the user). The new_dialog and done_dialog AutoLISP functions provide for dialog box placement.
