...size the dialog box such that the distance between the left edge of the client region and the left edge of the leftmost control is the same as that between the right edge of the rightmost control and the right edge of the client region.
Unless I'm way out in left field, this is what you do via the resource editor. If you have the guides enabled (Format ==> Toggle Guides), then you can drag your leftmost control to the left until it snaps to the left, and drag your rightmost control to the right until it snaps to the right.

If you don't have or want the guides enabled, you can do it manually. For the leftmost control, just drag it until its left edge is at whatever X pos you want, usually 7 DLUs. For the rightmost control, take the sum of the control's width and the guide value (e.g., 7), and subtract that from the from the dialog's width. That is X pos of the control. It sounds way more complicated than it is. Back when I was doing dialog design regularly, I could do it easily. Just get within 10 DLUs visually, and then do the math on the tens place in your head.

Microsoft used to adhere to these guidelines where spacing, DLUs, and such were all explained, but that may have changed.
