I would like to create a main Window class that has neither a frame, nor a menu or a Windows bar, just the client area (maybe a 1 pixel black frame). Can I use CWnd as base class and which methods I would need to overwrite? Or is it easier to overwrite the methods for drawing the non-client area?

The easiest way is to define a dialog without title bar.

Can you use a Dialog as base Window class? The whole App should neither have a Window bar nor a menu...

A lttle more information would be nice.
