    Footer Window (always on bottom from its parent)

    Hi guys, This forum has been very helpfull to me. I'm new to Win32 API.

    I've a new question:
    I have a main Window for my program, and then I made another window wich works like a footer.

    By using mathematics I can get that window to be floated on the bottom of the parent/main window. However, when I resize the main/parent it disapears.

    I would like to know how can I make a footer-type window to be always on the bottom of it's parent. I've been looking for hours but without success.

    Thanks in advance.

    Have you looked into 'status bar' controls?

    Other than that you need to handle SIZE and MOVE messages and reflect them to your footer window.
