Solution 1

OnCreate is called just when the application requests that the Create function be called. So it is not guarenteed that the window is fully created. OnInitDialog is called after the window (in this case the dialog) is completely created.
When you are dynamically creating a control, you will specify its parent window handle and so it has to be created completely. So always do it in OnInitDialog as said in the previous answer.
