I always saw some applications they have beautiful gui,just like bitmap systembar etc,looks like this:

it is cute, and I want my prog has same ui, how to do that?
I know none like that is nothing but only specious.
But I always regard my progs as my girl (:P though i'm single), i hope she is the most beautiful one, not only inside,but also outside.

I think Test Department has some examples about skinning a window you will find usefull (look at the bottom of news list).

Basicly to do this you need to create a window skeleton on screen with no title bar or borders.

call CreateWindowExA,NULL,\

Then you need to draw on your custom UI in the WM_Paint structure. Handle any buttons click/move/whatever in their respective structures in the WndProc.

Here is an example of making a custom close button:

.IF (check uMsg for click in the button coordinates)
call SendMessageA, HWnd,WM_CLOSE, NULL,NULL

You can make it as simple or complicating as you need ranging from what I wrote your own widgits and skinning system:)

you have to learn how to handle the windows gdi api's...
first i thought thats pretty hard but it became very easy
now... you should rather play around with memoryDC's
and Bitblitting instaed of analysing enormous 10000-line
progs... you'll find very simple examples in hutchs newest
masm pack (examples8/mob/cws)... both cws (custom-
windows-skin) progs have a little bug (WM_ERASEBKGND).
if you want to see a fully working do-nothing GUI then

damn tripod :(
