    Button and edit control border

    I would like to change the border of my button and edit controls. With buttons I can use BS_FLAT, but it still has one white and one black border. I would like it to have 1px black border. And I would like to know how to do it with edit controls, too.

    I thought it wouldn't be a good idea to post a new thread, so I had one more question about buttons. How can I change the color of the button? WM_CTLCOLORBTN doesn't work with BS_PUSHBUTTON. I am using Dev-C++.

    Well, making an edit box with a simple 1px border is easy, but still I haven't found a way to change the border of a button.

    Use CreateWindowEx and WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE as its first parameter.

    Well I want to make a single pixel border, WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE doesn't really do that...
