I''ve been searching, to no avail, for information on how applications such as WebZip completely alter the appearance of windows and their controls with customised textures. I want to do this for my installation/config app for the learning experience (and to pretty it up a little). I''m just looking for a few links and site refs, I don''t want to take up anyone''s time pleading for detailed descriptions or walk-throughs. Much appreciated, VoidHawk. ------------------------------ What we learn from history is that that we learn nothing from history. ------------------------------

Heres the basic idea: you need to create buttons with the BS_OWNERDRAW property. Then, you need to handle the WM_DRAWITEM message in your window procedure. I wont go into detail here because MSDN can explain the WM_DRAWITEM message better than I can.

BTW, the book Programming Windows 95 describes this quite well -- I'd go get that (good book) .
