You can use:
BOOL CWnd::ModifyStyle( DWORD dwRemove, DWORD dwAdd, UINT nFlags = 0 );
Look at the help provided with VC about the details of using this function.

Sorry Nrusinhsa, but i am Bulgarian and I do not know which english books are good. But by my opinion and experience you will know more if you spend more time programming. That's the only way...
There are a lot of undocumented things which you will not find even in "Undocumented Windows" book or "Undocumented MFC"  or whereever.
Bye, Thanks for the points :)
