Anyone know how I can create a window with no title bar? I haven''t really set any window property flags in the WNDCLASSEX structure except for:
Form::Form(HINSTANCE hIns, WNDPROC wp, int x, int y, int w, int h){
	this->wc.cbSize = sizeof(WNDCLASSEX);
	this->wc.lpfnWndProc = wp;
	this->wc.cbClsExtra = 0;
	this->wc.cbWndExtra = 0;
	this->wc.hInstance = hIns;
	this->wc.hIcon = NULL;
	this->wc.hCursor = LoadCursor(hIns, IDC_ARROW);
	this->wc.hbrBackground = NULL;
	this->wc.lpszMenuName = "";
	this->wc.lpszClassName = "WCFORM";
	this->wc.hIconSm = NULL;

	this->width = w;
	this->height = h;

	this->hWnd = CreateWindowEx(WS_EX_TOPMOST, "WCFORM", "", 0, x, y, w, h, NULL, NULL, hIns, NULL);
	//this->hWnd = GetDesktopWindow();

	this->bgColour = CreateSolidBrush(RGB(255,255,255));
	this->ForeHDC = GetDC(this->hWnd);
	this->BackHDC = CreateCompatibleDC(this->ForeHDC);
	SetBkMode(this->BackHDC, TRANSPARENT);
	this->backBmp = CreateCompatibleBitmap(this->BackHDC, this->width, this->height);
	SelectObject(BackHDC, backBmp);
	this->controls = NULL;
	this->next = NULL;
Anyone know how to get rid of it?

this->hWnd = CreateWindowEx(WS_EX_TOPMOST, "WCFORM", "", WS_POPUP, x, y, w, h, NULL, NULL, hIns, NULL);

If you want a border on it use: WS_POPUP | WS_BORDER.

when using CreateWindowEx for the DWORD for the windowstyle use WS_POPUP. i think it''s the 4th parameter.. and using CreateWindow it''s the 3rd
