Hey, I am currently using code::blocks and I am basically creating everything by hand here (dialogs and all)

I just need to know how I might go about loading up a dialog that I have created in my .rc (that is, getting it to pop up when I click a button)

I was thinking I could just use some simple thing like ShowDialog() or something along the line (still new to the whole windows gui coding!) but yeah, i've been having quite a bit of trouble trying to solve the mystery of how to actually get this to display when my button is clicked, before I run out of hair from yanking it all out, could someone help me in solving this? lol

Here are my source codes in order.

main.cpp | resource.rc | resource.h

#include <windows.h>

I just need to know how I might go about loading up a dialog that I have created in my .rc (that is, getting it to pop up when I click a button)

You are doing that very thing already, i.e. using DialogBox(...).
So,
- define a new dialog box resource in the resource files
- write the code for the new dialog procedure
and use it like ...

case IDC_SETSBTN:
/* --> Load Sets Dialog <-- */
    return DialogBox(hInst, MAKEINTRESOURCE(DLG_SETTINGS), 
        hwndDlg, Settings_DialogProc);
