Hi!

On my dialog I put a control(like Static) and then I set a region to the static(like a circle for example). When I resize the dialog I resize the static proportionally and set a new region(circle) to it(I delele old ,of course)
But what happens,that if OnPaint of the dialog is called I cannot see anymore the region rather the rect of the static,but events limited only within the region, so it behaves like regioned control and not regioned.
How can solve this problem?

some/most standard controls don't respect window regions.

for example, and edit control will apply the region to its border/edge, but the inner edit box client area (the white part where you type) stays rectangular.

if you want to do window regions, then use a plain CWnd and draw it yourself, rather than use a CStatic or other standard windows control.

or do all the painting yourself and limit your own painting to the region (eg. if you want something circular, only paint a cirular shape).

if this still doesn't work, try doing a RedrawWindow for the control after changing the region.  Or, better, Invalidate for the whole dialog.  it could be that the region is getting changed AFTER the dialog is repainted.
