This refers to Petzold's "sketch" program. It
comes up initially "minimized", and I wanted it
to come up "maximized", so I read how to do it
in the win32api, and it seemed all I had to do
was "OR" WS_MAXIMIZE with the existing dwStyle
paramater (WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW), and that would cause
the window to be maximized initially. Negative!
Why oh why do they seem to always leave something
important out of their documentation? (Msoft, I mean).
Obviously there is more to do - have any of you
window's gurus ran into this (maybe a long time ago)?
Also, is it going to be possible for me to prevent
this window from ever being altered? (in other words,
I want it to either be "maximized", or "hidden",
but never made any different than when it is first
created? I would really like it to just start up
and be "fullscreen", but I can't find that described
anywhere in the win32api. Help.
