    Newbie Question

    Hi there.

    I just wanted to know what's the difference between some functions:
    the difference between the WNDCLASS class and the WNDCLASSEX class.
    the difference between CreateWindow(...) and CreateWindowEx(..).

    What's this Ex thing.

    I used to use the non Ex things but now, I'm learning OpenGL and I see this things everywere. I think they may be a better way of creating windows which is more suitable for graphics. Correct me if i'm wrong.

    well, Theanks.

    CreateWindowEx has an extra parameter that allows you to specify the extended style of the window. Otherwise, both functions are identical.
