GetDlgCtrlID does not return anything

Blob_Dlg asked:

Open original thread

I use GetDlgCtrlID to show tooltips on my buttons.

This worked well before.

Now I copied a bunch of buttons to an other dialog, which gave me some issues with the resource.h file.
I fixed these manually

Now it seems the buttons that were copied don't return their ID with GetDlgCtrlID
not in the new dialog, neither in the original dialog.

However, in the solution explorer visual studio fives me a tooltip with the correct ID
#define IDC_LOCK 11297    (tooltip this corresponds with resource.h)

Any ideas on this one?
my guess is to clean the resources, but that will be a pain, since it is a big file.
or can it be done automatically?
