I need to change several times the shape of a window. I have two CRgn objects, and I pass an HRGN of that objects to a SetWindowRgn function. But the SetWindowRgn call, works only one time per object. After that, nothing happens. No error, no crash. I tryed to store the HRGN of the window first, but the machine crash.

1. You can't use the HRGN after you've called the SetWindowRgn API/Function.  From the help:
After a successful call to SetWindowRgn, the operating system owns the region specified by the region handle hRgn. The operating system does not make a copy of the region. Thus, you should not make any further function calls with this region handle. In particular, do not close this region handle.

2. Once you've set the Rgn, any new regions are relative to this.  You need to reset the region to the entire window, if you want to set a new region.  Setting it to NULL should be enough.

3. Redraw parameter must be null.


4. Therefore to change the region do something like :
pWnd->SetWindowRgn( NULL, TRUE ) ; // remove old region
pWnd->SetWindowRgn( hrgn, TRUE ) ; // set new region
