    How can I make a button not visible but make it so I can still click on it?

    Hey, how can I have a button thats not visible but still clickable. Also how can I make it so that if the mouse is over the button you get the hand curser. I want to a button that is over a bitmap but make it so the buttons not vissible. I want it so you can click on the bitmap(actually the button) and it will go to a website. If you know a better way to do this than could you please tell me?

    Well I can never get mfc stuff to work with api programs cause you can't include windows.h. So does anyone know how to make the button invisible with disabling it?
