    Window Size

    I just finished making this little test program to demonstrate my problem:

    This is a window run with the classic Windows XP style:

    http://mars.walagata.com/w/payne/Before.jpg

    And here is that same window run with the standard Windows XP style:

    http://mars.walagata.com/w/payne/After.jpg

    Now the thing is, the title bar is obviously bigger in the second program, but I dont understand why the client area of the program is now smaller.

    If anyone knows of a way to fix this, Id appreciate it.

    One possible 'fix' is to handle the WM_SIZE event for the parent window and resize the child control to fit the parent's client dimensions, eg:
    Code:
    case WM_SIZE:
    {
    WORD cx,cy;
    cx=LOWORD(lParam);
    cy=HIWORD(lParam);
    /*use SetWindowPos or MoveWindow to resize */
    MoveWindow(hChildControl, 0, 0, cx, cy, 0);
    return 0;
    }
