    Exclamation Status bar and toolbar positioning

    Hi,
    I've made a window, which has a status bar and a toolbar on it, with the toolbar aligned to the bottom of the window. However, the status bar clearly dislikes it intruding on its turf and overlaps it, so I can only see the top of the buttons. Is there a way I can get them to play nicely with each other and align themselves one above the other?

    Okay now this solution may not work, it's just a suggestion. What I believe you have to do is determine the new size of the window (the mid area between side to side (left boundary of window to right boundary of window) and top to bottom (bottom of menu's to top of your toolbar)) Once you have that I believe you have to tell the scrollbar this information somehow. I can't tell you exactly how to do that, but I believe it can be done. I think I read it somewhere a while back.

    Unhappy

    Bah, I've tried using GetWindowRect to get the toolbar coords after it resized itself (in my parent window's WM_SIZE code) and then using MoveWindow with the top and bottom reduced by 24 pixels, but then it just disappears of the face of the Earth. Ho hum....
