... how? Can someone just give me a little push in the right direction? Google has not been terribly kind to me on this topic. Specifically, I''m making a dockable window for my tilemap editor. The window contains the tileset for selecting the tile to draw with, and can either be part of the main window (taking up the right side), a floating window by itself, or just closed. How is it done?

Though i have never done this, If i were doing it i would:

1 catch the WM_LBUTTONUP message when your window is moved
2 check to see if its around area to dock it to
3 if yes use SetWindowPos() or whatever to size and move window accordingly and hide the title bar else ignore
