    Question Prevent Window from being resized?

    When you create a window...
    Code:
    hwnd = CreateWindowEx(
            WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE,
            g_szClassName,
            "weee.",
            WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW,
            CW_USEDEFAULT, CW_USEDEFAULT, 580, 50,
            NULL, NULL, hInstance, NULL);
    How do you stop people resizing it? [apart from removing their fingers with a knife]

    A pretty straigtforward and easy to use method using CreateWindowEx is combine the window styles WS_OVERLAPPED and WS_SYSMENU, make sure you dont use the WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW

    And if you want to keep the minimize box just use WS_MINIMIZEBOX also. Just a side note
