Client area vs window size...

How can I create a client area that is larger than my window? I have a child window that takes up a small portion of my parent window, and it is created with scrollbars, but I cannot figure out how to make the client area larger. Say the window is 320x240, but I need the client area to be 800x600, how could I accomplish this?

    :

    If you look at 'OnWmPaint()' in SCROLLERS.ZIP that I have sent you recently you will see this call:

    SetViewportOrgEx (hDC,
    -GetScrollPos (hWnd, SB_HORZ),
    -GetScrollPos (hWnd, SB_VERT),
    NULL);

    That is what makes the client area a viewport into a larger portion of window...

    You know, I didn't have any clue as to what that did and thus hadn't messed with it, lol. Thanks Guru, I'll check out the source and my help files.
