Hi there,

I use regular mdi child forms in my program. I create these forms by using Application.Createform. Now I want to set the style property of the TWndClass for these mdi child forms like this:

style := CS_HREDRAW or CS_VREDRAW or CS_OWNDC;

But as far as I know, we only use TWndClass in Win32 applications. How do I set this style property in VCL application???

Bye,
Jeroen

You can simply override CreateParams in your MDI child forms:

type
  TMyMDIChildForm = class(TForm)
  ...
  protected
    procedure CreateParams(var Params: TCreateParams); override;
  end;

procedure TMyMDIChildForm.CreateParams(var Params: TCreateParams);
begin
  inherited CreateParams(Params);
  with Params do
    WindowClass.style := CS_HREDRAW or CS_VREDRAW or CS_OWNDC;
end;

Thanks, that was indeed what I was looking for. Do I need to register the class also?

You don't have to register the class, VCL does it for you.
