 You create a form and keep it hidden.  Then when the user clicks on a button, you call the form's show method.

1. Create a button.
2. add the line 'AboutBox->ShowModal();' to the button.
3. create a form.
4. change form border to bsDialog.
5. add information to it.
6. rename it 'AboutBox', and caption to 'About This Program'.

To get a 'C' Copyright symbol make sure the number lock is on, hold ALT, and type in 0169; this is done in a labels caption for example.
