    Window without 3D border

    Hello

    I cant find a correct style which would make the child window without 3D border

    For e.g. I use now

    Code:
    WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE | BS_RADIOBUTTON,
    Which style makes it flat?

    Thanks in advance

    Assuming you're creating a button, there's BS_FLAT.

    Yes I tried that before but it changes only the button... In my case Radiobutton or checkbox. The child window remains with 3D border

    I'm confused. If the window style contains BS_RADIOBUTTON and the BS_FLAT style makes button flat, what other child window are you referring to? Maybe a bit more code would help.

    HWND hwnd;

    hwnd = CreateWindowEx(
    WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE,
    g_szClassName,
    "The title of my window",
    WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW,
    CW_USEDEFAULT, CW_USEDEFAULT, 240, 120,
    NULL, NULL, hInstance, NULL);

    The first parameter (WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE) is the extended windows style, in this case I have set it to give it a sunken inner border around the window. Set it to 0 if you'd like to see the difference. Also play with other values to see what they do.
    Sometimes I forget what I am doing when I enter a room, actually, quite often.

    You can remove styles by using a boolean AND.

    Thank you... Works well

    Just for record:

    Code:
    hWnd_Radio = CreateWindowEx(0,
    		TEXT("BUTTON"),
    		TEXT(""),
    		WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE | BS_RADIOBUTTON,
    		485, 375, 16, 16,
    		hWnd,
    		NULL,
    		hInstance,
    		NULL);
    	if ( hWnd_Radio == NULL )
    		return FALSE;
