I'd like to have a frame with no border and no title bar..
I have changed the frame's style in the PreCreateWindow so:

cs.style=~WS_BORDER|WS_CAPTION

but this gives some problems during the execution.

After I have changed the frame's style in OnCreate:
ModifyStyle(WS_CAPTION,0);
ModifyStyle(WS_BORDER,0);

In this way my frame has not the title bar, but has the border!!

I'd like to know what I have to do to delete the border or to colour it as the view's background.

Thanks.

Try ModifyStyle ( WS_EX_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW, 0); and try if you get new problems during execution.

Try this in your PreCreateWindow function

cs.style = WS_CLIPCHILDREN | WS_OVERLAPPED;

if that still fails, then try it with WS_POPUP instead of WS_OVERLAPPED or just simply WS_CLIPCHILDREN only.

There are several border style flags. You should make sure that all of them are off. These are:
  WS_BORDER
  WS_DLGFRAME
  WS_THICKFRAME

Try in the PreCreateWindow,

cs.style = WS_POPUP | WS_VISIBLE;
cs.dwExStyle = 0;
