Form Resizing and WM_NCHITTEST
Posted on 2000-04-28
I want to create a size grip control that acts like the size grip on the status bar. But you should be able to set it on every control (not just on the form itself). It should be aligned at every edge of the parent control.
What I tried is to create a control and catch the WM_NCHITTEST of the parent form and the control itself. This worked but only if the controls parent was the form itself, cause windows doesn't send the WM_NCHITTEST message to the form if a control answered it positive. Any idea how I can make the control resizing the form.
Please don't post answers like mouse catching and just call ParentForm.SetBounds(...). I know doing that.
But your comments are always welcome >;o}
Thanx for your help, ptm.
