I am having difficulties finding the dialog reference in IDA. e.g. i can trace a dialog in "resource Hacker" or "PE Explorer" which looks like this:

5035 DIALOG 0, 0, 295, 163
STYLE DS_SETFONT | DS_MODALFRAME | WS_POPUP
CAPTION ""
LANGUAGE LANG_DANISH, 0x1
FONT 8, "MS Sans Serif"
{
   CONTROL "", -1, STATIC, SS_BLACKFRAME | WS_CHILD, 0, 0, 295, 163 
   CONTROL "Static", 1526, STATIC, SS_LEFT | WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE | WS_GROUP, 129, 121, 68, 16 
   CONTROL "Static", 1527, STATIC, SS_LEFT | WS_CHILD | WS_GROUP, 199, 123, 93, 14 
   CONTROL 551, -1, STATIC, SS_BITMAP | WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE, 0, 0, 295, 163 
   CONTROL "Progress1", 1232, "msctls_progress32", WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE | WS_BORDER, 0, 138, 295, 14 
   CONTROL "Number of trials left:", -1, STATIC, SS_LEFT | WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE | WS_GROUP, 2, 154, 63, 8 
   CONTROL "15", 1519, STATIC, SS_LEFT | WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE | WS_GROUP, 65, 154, 9, 8 
}

How, or what should i look for in IDA in order to find where it is being referenced?

Search for a call to FindResource with 5035(0x13AB) as lpName argument

    I tend to disagree. More specifically: how confident are you there's a call to FindResource and what alternatives are there? What's the significance of 0x13AB, how you got that value and what's it's relation with lpName? – NirIzr Oct 21 at 20:04
