    Talking whatzitcalled (GUI question)

    hello there folks, could someone point me in the right direction?

    i want to include something like a ComboBox with a unique shape/appearance in an application i'm working on (in win32). what i'm talking about is something with rounded ends, and an inner shadow, like the file attached to this post. i feel like it may be acheivable, but have no idea how to accomplish this.

    can anyone point me in the right direction?

    thanks in advance for your help!

    thanks for the reply Stoned_Coder,
    i've done quite a bit of searching about Owner Drawn ComboBoxes, but none of them seem to actually change the EditBox portion's appearance. everything i've seen seems to be about using bitmaps in the drop down list part of the ComboBox. am i just missing something i wonder?
