CChildFrame frame border

Hello

How can I change the border of MDI Child frame window. I want to achive very thin border, or better border like in forms of VB applications....

I have already tried but no results:

BOOL CChildFrame::PreCreateWindow(CREATESTRUCT& cs)
{
      // TODO: Modify the Window class or styles here by modifying
      //  the CREATESTRUCT cs
      cs.style&=~(FWS_ADDTOTITLE | WS_THICKFRAME);

      //cs.dwExStyle|=WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE;
      if( !CMDIChildWnd::PreCreateWindow(cs) )
            return FALSE;

      return TRUE;
}

thank you for your help

have you tried the solution given in

You need to derive a class from MDIChildWnd where you do the coding you showed.

WS_THICKFRAME should be removed. It is then up to you to draw a visible frame which allows the user to identify a place where to size. MFC assumes that thick frames can be resized. But when you design a GUI you are free to change that. There are other applications which to a sizing with a thin border (ie firefox).
