Changing color of form title bar

Posted on 1998-08-23

Is there a way to change the color of the title bar (other than changing the Windows colors).  

Also, is there a way to have a window border but without the title bar ?

1. Yes, check, for instance, TRxGradientCaption in RXLib.
2. Yes:

  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    procedure WMNCHitTest( var Msg: TWMNCHitTest ); message WM_NCHitTest;
    procedure CreateParams( var Params: TCreateParams ); override;
  procedure TForm1.CreateParams( var Params: TCreateParams );
    inherited CreateParams( Params );
    with Params do Style := ( Style or WS_POPUP ) and ( not WS_DLGFRAME );

procedure TForm1.WMNCHitTest( var Msg: TWMNCHitTest ); // client area as titlebar, for dragging
  if ( Msg.Result = htClient )
  then Msg.Result := htCaption;
