    couldn't remove dialog styles

    I can add styles to a dialog runtime with GWL_STYLE,GetWindowLong,SetWindowLong APIs. But I couldn't remove dialog styles in the same manner. Can anybody give an example how to do this? I want to remove minimizebox style from a modeless dialog runtime.

    Hey,
    I didn't supposed this is a hard or long question. I'm asking different,
    Code:
    static DWORD oldStyle;
    
    oldStle=GetWindowLong(hwnd,GWL_STYLE);
    SetWindowLong(hwnd,GWL_STYLE,oldStyle|WS_MINIMIZEBOX);
    this is adding styles good. But I'm trying ! operator for removing. What is is the true way?

    Have you tried the '~' operator?

    Thank you for give your time. Yes tried it later but did not. Later, I tried a funny thing, means tried minus("-") and this was best Anyway, I was working on changing a dialog style modal <-> nonmodal while initializing for a propertysheet and some different things. Lately, minus can do some but not changing modal etc. styles. Now, I suppose it is impossible. At least, this experiance teach me a different side of minus sign

    Regards

    modal is not a style and can not be changed.
