Is it possible to change the size of a CMDIFrameWnd's border?  I have an MDI app and I want to paint some controls in along the left side (vertically) of the frame window.  Thus moving it's client area over to the right more.  

I only want to change the left side of the border, the other side can stay the same.

You may try something like that:

void CMainFrame::OnNcCalcSize(BOOL bCalcValidRects, NCCALCSIZE_PARAMS FAR* lpncsp)
{
CMDIFrameWnd::OnNcCalcSize(bCalcValidRects, lpncsp);
if (bCalcValidRects)
          lpncsp->rgrc[0].left += 32;
}

Also you have to rewrite OnNcPaint:

void CMainFrame::OnNcPaint()
{
Default();
...Draw your stuff here
}
