Your creating a moving target. The code you posted in post #7 was fine except that the "hwnd = CreateWindow(...)" call needed to be moved above the child windows.
Your code is not standard C89 (what compiler are you using), so needs modifications before it can be compiled with other compilers.
the toolbar is fine, but the status bar won't appear unless i move it

Now, translate what you have on paper to the screen - modifying your WM_SIZE handler to accomodate the relative positions of those controls would be a good start.Originally Posted by beene
