Window Resizing trouble

Recommended Posts

sp00n    122
I'm having a bit of grief trying to get a windowed D3D9 app to be resizeable (i.e., by dragging the corner of it with a mouse like a usual window.) the window class style is CS_HREDRAW | CS_VREDRAW | CS_OWNDC, and was created as WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW | WS_VISIBLE. whenever i try to re-size with the mouse, the cursor changes to the re-size cursor as i move the windows cursor over the border of the window, but when i try to drag to resize the window, nothing happens, i get no resizing of the window, and no drag-resize rectangle to the cursor. as soon as i drag the cursor outide the window border, it changes back to a standard cursor. I've determined (from log functions added to msg pump) that the window is not recieving WM_SIZE or WM_SIZING messages whenever i try to resize. Could anybody give me some pointers? Thanx, sp00n

Sounds like your window is being treated as a dialog. I think the problem may be with your extended window style.


DWORD dwExStyle;
dwExStyle=WS_EX_APPWINDOW | WS_EX_WINDOWEDGE;
...
AdjustWindowRectEx(&WindowRect, dwStyle, FALSE, dwExStyle);



This code comes from Nehe tutorial 1, check that out if you are having problems:

I've tried it but it still doesn't work, I cant drag the window with the title bar either.

here are the values for my WNDCLASSEX:


wcex.cbSize = sizeof(WNDCLASSEX);
wcex.style = CS_HREDRAW | CS_VREDRAW | CS_OWNDC;
wcex.lpfnWndProc = StaticMsgProc;
wcex.cbClsExtra = NULL;
wcex.cbWndExtra = NULL;
wcex.hInstance = g_hInst;
wcex.hIcon = LoadIcon(NULL, IDI_APPLICATION);
wcex.hCursor = LoadCursor(NULL, IDC_ARROW);
wcex.hbrBackground = (HBRUSH)GetStockObject(WHITE_BRUSH);
wcex.lpszMenuName = NULL;
wcex.lpszClassName = m_sName.c_str();
wcex.hIconSm = LoadIcon(NULL, IDI_APPLICATION);



and this is what I'm passing to CreateWindowEx:

CreateWindowEx(WS_EX_APPWINDOW | WS_EX_WINDOWEDGE,
m_sName.c_str(),
m_sName.c_str(),
WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW,
m_nX, m_nY,
m_nWidth, m_nHeight,
NULL,
NULL,
g_hInst,
NULL);
