    Single taskbar icon, multiple windows

    I've noticed that normally when you make a multiple windowed program multiple taskbar icons appear, so I was wondering what the method that programs like mirc use for their windows.

    Also second question, what is the C++ (not resource) code for:
    textbox, textarea, checkbox, dropdown-menu?

    I use borland command-line 5.5 in case you need to know.
    Thanks for anyone who can help.

    mIRC uses MDI for its windows. (MDI = Multiple Document Interface)

    Well, how do I do that then, or at least teach me how to browse msdn, I find it really hard to actually find code there.

    Use Google to search MSDN. Just type in site:msdn.microsoft.com, and then whatever you're looking for. MSDN's built in search sucks.

    http://www.google.com/search?q=mdi+site:http://mdsn.microsoft.com&l=en
    Your search - mdi site:http://mdsn.microsoft.com - did not match any documents.
    I've tried it without the http://

    It should be msdn.microsoft.com and not mdsn.microsoft.com
