Hello,

     Sorry for the low point value.  Ill add as many points as I can before the project is answered.
     Ok, the problem is this, after overriding OnNcPaint, OnNcHitTest, OnNcCalcSize, OnNcLButtonDown, and OnNcLButtonDblClk, my system (main)menu (stored in the resource file), as well as any scrollbars are not displayed.  I dont think i can call the default form process over again from the override, as i have changed the client size considerably.  Im hoping there are functions to draw it, but im willing to do any way possable.  If you can push me close enough in the right direction, the points are yours.

Thank you
Richard

Drawing XP NC stuff is complex: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/shellcc/platform/commctls/userex/refentry.asp but there are ways to do it without blocking Win2000 NC drawing taht you can use, like http://www.codeproject.com/managedcpp/ManagedUxTheme.asp?df=100&forumid=16513&exp=0&select=727594

For non-XP drawing (or in XP while ignoring the skins) you can use the API calls like DrawCaption and DrawEdge.

There is also a nice example of drawing the non-client area by shrinking the region in the message: http://core.tav.kiev.ua/~om/msj/0697/c++textfigs.htm but I haven't tried that myself.

Hope this helps.
