winamp style/non-client window area
I was wondering if anyone knew how to create a window that has the same style that Winamp does in C++. With winamp, it doesn't have the normal frame, border, system menu, minimize, maximize, and restore buttons. I would like to learn how to make a window that does this. Is it a window? Maybe it's some kind of dialog box or something. If anyone knows how, please tell me how it might have been made or how I can make a program that contains something like it, but without supporting skins. I think it might have something to do with painting the non-client area of the window. It has worked for a while, but when I resize, or click on some parts of the window, it exposes the normal window look. I was using CWindowDC.
