    Use the mfc class wizard to add a control variable to the group box. Then use the control variable's methods to manipulate the group box.

    The simplest way would be use the GroupBox without title and put a static control with the desired title at the desired position above the GroupBox.

    Then, I guess. You will need some custom control or, at least, custom draw.
