Hi,

I want to change the appearance of my CDialog (um, Dialog App) wgile the program's running, but I have no idea if this is possible. I think it is since I found some functions called "ModifyStyle" and "ModifyStyleEx" (but can't get them to do what I want). I want to add/remove the border of my dialog when the user hits a certain key... I don't know if it's possible but still.

Thanks :)

ModifyStyle(WS_BORDER, 0); // to remove
ModifyStyle(0, WS_BORDER); // to add
do not forget to call UpdateWindow();
it should works

Thanks! :) It works indeed :)
Only one thing, when I use this the title bar does disappear, but there's still some kind of border around my dialog... is it also possible to remove the entire border? (like when you select "Border: None" in the resource editor/dialog properties)

look in dialog editor and notice with which flags your dialog created.
Then remove all set flags using ModifyStyle()

actualy window with no frAME coudl have only WS_POPUP (or other WS_xxx window style - WS_OVERLAPPED ... ) and WS_VISIBLE visibility flags.
