Using the project wizard, I chose an SDI application and created 5 dialog boxes. I used InitDialog to maximize each Window.

Unfortunately, only the active dialog window shows. I can't see the other four windows in a tab-type style.

What am I doing wrong?

Dialog is something supposed to by modal. You can show one dialog on top of another one, which is not nice.
It's hard to say what is your actual problem without seeing your code, but it sounds like you are trying to abuse dialogs...

If you need a tab control then use a tab control[^]!

Not 100% sure, but its fairly likely that it may help OP who probably does not understand the concept of dialogs, modal and non-modal windows, and SDI. 5ed.

Yes, you are probably right.
Thank you.
