What OS?  windows?

If so you can do it by handling the WM_NCPAINT message.  You can pass this message to the default window procedure so the title is drawn properly, then when the default window procedure returns, you can draw your logo on top if what it drew.  This may cause a "flash" of the logo however, but it is the easiest way.  If you don't want the flash, you have to draw the title bar and non-client area manually.  That can be done, but it is quite a pain.

Perhaps the 'flash' can be avoided by validating the area where the logos will be painted before passing the message to the default window procedure?

Unforintaely, I don't think that works.  I don't think windows will record such a complex update region.  (The mac does)  But you can try that.

I don't know either, just a thought ...

BTW, nietod, could you tell me what's the meaning of 'Unforintaely' (or is it just a multi-typo)
