Personalized Windows

Recommended Posts

I understand the basics of windows programming, but was wondering how programs create specialized windows aka PlanetSide or AC2. Do they use directx to build there own windows or what?

Most games define their own set of GUI controls. Depending on the used game API it can be OGL or DirectX. But most of them don''t use the standard windows controls.

If you want to create customized controls, either write your own, or learn how to use skinning.
