    Question Get Down and Stay Down Buttons?

    How can I make a button stay down until clicked again?

    I saw:
    BS_PUSHLIKE Makes a button (such as a check box, three-state check box, or radio button) look and act like a push button. The button looks raised when it isn't pushed or checked, and sunken when it is pushed or checked.

    As a button style, so I did a:
    Code:
    SendDlgItemMessage(hwndDlg, IDB_GP_GAME, BM_SETSTYLE, (WPARAM) LOWORD(BS_PUSHLIKE), MAKELPARAM(1, 0));
    in the WM_INITDIALOG. However, nothing happened. (The button is still a normal button!)

    Can anyone give me a bit of help as what to do?

    Thanks!

    I think 'CBitmapButton' class will be helpful to you.

    I suspect that when msdn says
    BS_PUSHLIKE
    Makes a button (such as a check box, three-state check box, or radio button) look and act like a push button. The button looks raised when it isn't pushed or checked, and sunken when it is pushed or checked.
    what it means is that it only works for a check-box, 3-state or radio button.

    Things you might like to try:
    1. Use SetWindowPos to force a complete repaint/update of the control after you change the style.
    2. Create a button control with the BS_PUSHLIKE style and see if it makes any difference to the appearance/state of that button.

    If that fails just create an owner-draw button and use DrawFrameControl to draw the button in whatever state you want.
