First of all, thanks Ward for responding to my last question regarding rich edit controls.
My question this time has to do with status windows....
I created a status window using the CreateWindowEx API function
hStatusWnd = CreateWindowEx(0, STATUSCLASSNAME,"", WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE, 0, 0, 0, 0, hwnd, NULL, hInst, NULL);
Works fine but it covers the bottom part of the parent window and the bottom part of the vertical scroll bar. How do I prevent the status bar from doing this?
One last question...How do I prevent the WM_DESTROY message from being sent when Alt-F4 is pressed or when the user clicks the X at the top of the window? I want a message box to appear instead.
Even when I got rid of the PostQuitMessage(0); function the window still closes. Any ideas??
Thank you in advance
